    It FINALLY happened....

    I started riding a little in July and was more consisitent and serious by August. Anyways, yesterday a co-worker commented that I must be riding because I'm starting to look thinner. It only took losing 22 pounds for someone to notice

    He hasn't seen me probably for at least a month. Plus, he may have been tipped off by his wife, also a co-worker, who I talked to about cycling because she also cycles.

    Oh well, whatever the reason it made me feel good!

    Wait til you see someone who hasn't seen you in years and they don't recognize you until they hear your voice. That truly feels good.

    Not to hijack your thread, but I've lost 20-25 since winter, and saw someone this week I hadn't seen over the summer... he commented I'd lost weight and said I was looking good (not sure if that was a come-on, but I don't think so )

    Anyway, yes -- it is nice to have someone notice all the effort you've put in to dropping that extra luggage!
    It's that time of year again... I'm trying to get some donations for the June 2010 Ride 4 Heart any donations of $1 or more are greatly appreciated!!! (click the blue link text to donate for me). If I reach my funding goal I'll make it a full century by repeating the upper loop an extra time.

    Congratulations!

    I found when I began losing weight it took 40 pounds of loss before co-workers started noticing. That was about ten percent of my starting body weight.

    My best moment was when I was interviewing internally for a new position. The HR representative set me up for an interview, and when I showed up she didn't know who I was. She'd met me about three or four times a year for the past three years....
