Knocked it out of the park
My mom and dad were the most vocal about how I looked, and that had me really surprised since I saw them a few short months ago. They noticed the difference from that time, and they kept saying over and over, "Wow, you look SO GOOD!" My mom said that, especially from behind, I just look "normal size" now. Since I can't really see how I look from behind, I was very surprised by this. I also wore some jeans I got at the Goodwill recently which I felt fit my frame very nicely. My mom said she can't remember the last time she's ever seen me in jeans -- which is very true.
My siblings also said I look good, but it was much more low key. I didn't expect much from my brother, but I also believe my sister was a bit taken aback, which kept her comments to a minimum -- especially after we teasingly did a "butt check" with my mom, who said our butts looked pretty much the same (my sister is taller than me and says she's a 12 compared to my 14, but I don't know that for a fact).
Though it wasn't a contest for me, it felt good to be close to her size for the first time in 20 years. :)
And for obvious reasons, food was NOT logged nor calories counted during this trip. Come Monday, it's back to the grind. I'm READY to hit that 100-pounds-lost mark.
