I think the first 20 pounds came out of my chin and cheeks, so right away people were saying "YOU'VE LOST WEIGHT". But I was cold most of the winter and spring so I was wearing layers and layers of clothes that were sizes too big for me. Along came summer and I had to go buy clothes that fit me, I had hit maybe the 70 pound mark at that time and the reaction I got from people was hilarious, jaws literally dropping open. I think maybe the funniest reaction was from a woman I haven't seen in maybe 2 years, she shook her finger at me and said "there's something different about you, what is it?". So dry as toast I said "I've lost 80 pounds?". And out of her mouth instantaneously is "No no, that's not it".

I think maybe the best thing about having lost 80+ pounds is that I can look and smell like poo, be running around in filthy holey clothing, my hair in a snarled dirty mess, and still people are like "You look fantastic!!!".
