I think they’re starting to notice. We wondered how long it might take. There’s been a few hints lately that people are recognizing some changes are happening in our face, shape, size, and/or at least a difference in our general appearance. It’s gratifying. Because, as much as we would all like to say we aren’t doing it for anyone else “but ourselves”, let’s face it. We’re human. Which means we live for being the center of attention and we crave compliments! ‘nuf said.

I was able to successfully avoid partaking in the company pizza party by eating my lunch away from the building – I didn’t count on there being lots of leftovers when I returned (there were) but I have been able to say “I have already eaten” and “maybe later” and so I have been able to steer clear of the pizza (though it smells good! – they had ordered one of my favorites – Hawaiian).
I had my first person here at work acknowledge my weight loss. A co-worker told me ” that there was still some leftover pizza,” but when I said I couldn’t eat any – she responded “That’s because you’re losing weight.. .Good job – stick with it.”

Well, I had a big drop yesterday of 1.7, and then today I bounced back .8. Ugh.
I guess it’s going to be one of those yo-yo kind of weeks again. Dang! I am SO TIRED of being in the 170s. It’s been taking me FOR-EV-ER to break through this barrier. But, I shall persevere! *sigh*
I’m trying to focus on my inches lost instead of the scale numbers right now. Also the fact that I have nothing to wear. And, the fact that I am wearing my size 10 little black dress today to work that I haven’t been able to wear for many. many. years.
“Oh, Hello there little black dress hiding in the back of my closet! I thought that I gave you away! Come here, you!”
The only thing missing now are some sexy red shoes.
