100th post!

I have been saving this one for a couple of days as it is my 100th post and I hadn't really come up with anything 100th post worthy to share. 

Tonight, my daughter and I went to my aunts house for dinner.  I had not seen my aunt in a year as last October we had a huge family rift and my mother and her sister and their respective families had not spoken in that time.  She invited us to dinner this evening.  It had been a year since I had seen her or her sons.  The reaction to my weightloss was astounding!   I was really excited to hear that.  Even from my cousins (we all used to be really close), they are 30 & 31 and men and they noticed.  Although I am wondering if it was the clothing that I was wearing today because I had another strange reaction today.  I finally went out of the house in size 12 jeans.  I went to work today and my boss said "Don't take this the wrong way, but you are looking good"  Is that just creepy or what?  I am just so glad that my efforts are being noticed, but was I such a troll or something before?

I am so glad that there are people who are still listening to me ramble after these first 100 posts!  You make be greatful for this community!  Thanks again!

Ramble??? I don't think so. Either way, I love it. Keep it up!

A troll before? I wouldn't think so - its probably you look healthier now (thats what one of my close male friends told me.. Apparently, I used to look sick(ish) now I look better lol.) How the male mind works huh? Just accept the compliment :)

I know how you feel! I had a male co-worker see a much younger, much thinner picture of me. His response was OMG! OMG Janet you were hot. Were...that implies past tense. You mean at 248 pounds I'm not still hot? Hmm.. Well he should see me now, 40 lbs down. I may not be as hot as I used to be, but I'm hotter than was! Keep up the good work hottie!

A Troll?? Silly girl! Take it all as compliments and to keep up the good fight!

Just chalk it up to men not always phrasing things as nice as they think they are. :) They mean well! You look great! I was just scrolling through your posts and you are doing very well. We were banded about the same time. Mine was just a few weeks before you. We made a good decision. Your son looked very handsome for homecoming. These are fun times and now you get to hop in more of the pix!!! I have a sr. in high school and one in middle school. I never had my picture taken before and NOW I'm in every picture. :) Happy fall!

I don't think that was creepy of your boss. I think he just wanted to compliment you! Now you need to learn how to say "thank you" graciously! :-) Congrats on the size 12s! Isn't that fantastic?!
