The update...

Okay so a while ago I won a book on Jen's site, the book's called The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl. I must live in a cave because I'd never heard of Diet Girl before but apparently she's a very well known fellow weight loss blogger. I read through the book in a span of a few hours, it was written extremely well and it was sooo sincere! There was one thing she said that has resonated with me ever since I read it. She said "I'm not finished yet, I'm not ready, don't look at me." Really, that's exactly how I feel. Lately I've had a lot of people commenting on my loss telling me how great I look. I don't see it, I don't feel it, I'm not finished. I'm only barely halfway to my goal and...I don't know. I don't want people to see me I guess. Not until I'm finished. When people compliment me I usually end up looking away, blushing, and saying thank you...then quickly changing the subject. I don't want to talk about it, I don't want to acknowledge it except with all of you guys.

Does anyone else feel this way?

Today was a great day! I went for pedis with my sister in law, had lunch, then did a bit of shopping. I'm slightly disappointed I walked out with only a shirt and a book but I really didn't need to spend the money anyway, kind of broke so...yeah. I was hoping to find some capris but they don't like me so, no capris. Ah well, next year.

I'm with you. I actually started a list of funny and/or witty responses to "Have you lost weight?" and I came up with exactly zero.

It's nice and all, but it's not something I'm completely comfortable with either.

Good post.

:( I haven't lost enough to be noticeable yet...well except to family members!

I've been meaning to read that book!

Damn the capris!

Yeah I'm pretty much very uncomfortable with people making any comments on my appearance at all. No matter what size I am. Yes, issues, I have a few.

Glad you got a shirt, look online for the capris! You deserve them!
