Tonight a friend stopped by and we were chatting while the kids were playing in the front yard.  She asked how I've been doing since my surgery and I told her that I'd lost about 27 lbs.  And then she said, "Yeah, I can totally tell.".  She said she really noticed on Sunday at church because she hadn't seen me in a few weeks.  She said she noticed it first in my face (omg yay!) and also in my waist/torso, and arms.

*insert jaw drop here*

Needless to say, I was giddy.  She is the first person besides family and my best friend to notice my weight loss.  I know 27 lbs. isn't a lot in the grand scheme of how much I have to lose, but I was starting to think maybe I wasn't looking any different.

But not anymore!  Now I know its starting to show.  And I couldn't be happier!  I can't wait to lose another 27 lbs. and see what people say!


  1. Congrats! A NSV!!! That's terrific that people are starting to notice your weight loss! Isn't it a great feeling? Congrats!

  2. Congratulations on the WL and on the NSV!! I know we sometimes say that it doesn't matter what people think, say or do, but in this case your friend noticing your WL is so a good thing.

  3. It is always so much fun when people start to notice!
