The Awesome Thing

In my last post I had mentioned that the most awesome thing had happened, and then I left you hanging... for a bit longer than I intended oops!

My "winter sport" with the horses is Team Penning.  One night at penning I was sitting on a bench in the lounge chatting with friends when Laureen S came up to me and said "I just have to say you look amazing!  I didn't even recognize you!  Not that you didn't look good before!" 

She proceeded to tell me that she had turned to Nell (my bestie) before the break to ask why I hadn't come with her.  Nell asked her what the heck she meant, then pointed over to where Voodoo & I were chilling and said that I was actually on Nell's team with her.  Laureen told me that I had lost so much weight she hadn't recognized me at all, that she could especially see the difference in my face.

That was a pretty amazing feeling!  It's one thing to know you're gradually losing but sometimes you don't realize how different you look until someone points it out.  Then I realized I had lost (and kept off) at least 30 lbs, if not more, since I had seen her last winter.  So yeah, that was pretty awesome :D
