    Default Much needed compliments

    Hi all,

    I've been in a stall for a while, but have recently dropped more lbs. It's been frustrating but today I got the best compliment from one of our IT guys at work. As we were walking into a meeting, he told me that "if I kept losing weight I'd blow away." It was much needed and awesome to hear. 95 lbs down in a little over 8 months and I still have to constantly remind myself that I'm doing great. It's a good day when someone else reminds you that you're doing great too.
