Up a bit but trending towards always being in the 220s. I keep seeing people who only know me from last year this time when I was 40 pounds heavier and no one's noticed. I really just always look the same LOL. I lost it all in my ankles.

Perhaps no one says anything because they dont know how to without sounding like they are saying we were so over weight. As an overweight person I do feel I can comment because I know the battle. If I ever get to "pinch an inch" size, I will reconsider my comments.

Im sure they notice, but dont know how to sound positive.

Rock on!! Weight loss is for YOU!!

No, I think they literally don't notice. I don't look as different as I think I do and they are always surprised if I mention it. It comes up in relation to the job (I'm a lifeguard and weight affects swimming a lot).

Gotcha!!

I used to swim a lot in HS. Not sure my teens believe me when I tell them I did 100 laps in 56 minutes. They like the throwing-up part though. lol

I've lost about 35 lbs this year so far and usually no one mentions it to me, either. Though I kind of prefer it that way. I'm still wearing my same clothes. I was busting out of them last January (or not fitting in them at all) and now they're just getting baggy. So I "look" the same mostly. Except having lost about 35 lbs. in my neck. I could stand to lose some in my ankles. Anyway, I know, and it makes a big difference to me. We'll see what happens once I've lost another 35.

I think you've got to just keep rolling and know the difference that 40 lbs. makes to you.

I feel like different weight losses engender different noticings. Like 260 to 250 people notice, but not 240-230, KWIM? Our bodies don't always look as different with the loss at one weight or another. I would LOVE to lose 35 pounds in my neck!

Welcome Redz!

No change for me today--though I'm calling that a win, since I had dinner with family from out-of-town last night and ate peach pie. It was so good and so worth it. I also had too much wine. I'm actually shocked that I didn't go up this morning. This whole weekend is going to involve a lot of eating out and dinners with family. Hopefully, I can keep it to a dull roar.
