Girl, you need to eat more! (my Dad, upon hearing I was down to 109 lbs. I told him I was eating a ton!)
Now don't go overboard with this weight loss thing or get obsessed too much with it. You're not doing that, are you? (My mom, upon hearing my size in clothing. (since she sometimes buys me clothes) I'm not even TRYING to lose weight. It's just happening)
What?!!?? You're a 109 lbs?!!? 109 lbs?!!? A size 0?!!?? A SIZE ZERO?!!?? (my brother, upon hearing my weight and size)
She's down to nothing (one former co worker to another former co worker)
Wow. You've lost a ton more weight since I last saw you (another former co worker. I've only lost 12 lbs since then - and I last saw them all 8 months ago)
You're looking really good now. (another former co worker)
You look so different now. (my former boss)
She'll blow away if she loses anymore weight. (our son to his father upon hearing of my weight loss)
The other night, you were looking the best I have ever seen you look, and your stomach was a lot flatter (a friend who has since asked me about raw and is joining the journey)
Today, you're looking the best I have EVER seen you look. (my dh upon me finally being brave enough to wear my shirt tucked in my jeans and then eyeing me up and down for a few minutes. What a great feeling!)

How much weight have you lost?
08-12-2005, 11:31 AM
Over the past 3 1/2 years, 77 lbs (but I didn't follow raw to lose all that) I've lost 13 lbs since going raw.

Before to long all the people that are worried about you will be asking you how you did it. They will want to get recipes from you and do some of the things you are doing. I have had that happen many times.

You are a beautiful woman looking at pictures from my ordination (other daughter)

Umm, there is something different about you ( man at church, who know I have a husband and does not want another, but enters my space a tad too often - sorry I am having a moment)
I need a mirror to see you (friend)

Don't lose too much, you know you are tall ( and yeah I have 50 pounds to go too - oh that was a friend)
You skin looks so good - can I touch it ( lady at a workshop - I didn't know her)
I know for a fact, I need to continue, because writing these comments help me confirm something - that it is working (oh, that's me) :eek:
My family ( mom, dad and sis's) hasn't seen me, so in a month we will all be together and we shall see those comments - thanks for the thread!

Swiddweas, I'm looking at your location, and that sure does sound good!
On another note, here's another comment I got today:
"Look at your ribs; you're a regular Karen Carpenter!" (husband, and I didn't appreciate that one too much.)

[QUOTE=VeggieMel]Swiddweas, I'm looking at your location, and that sure does sound good!

Location? Swid By your name is says, Location: in the forest near a bubbling brook
That sounds so peaceful. I'm going to Aspen soon, and I can't wait to see forests and bubbling brooks!

I haven't lost squat...so I'm going to just dream about having an entry here... :)

Sure you don't want any chicken? (Dad, who's made this remark since 1980 when I became a vegetarian)
Do you think I can eat like that, too? (Mom, who already eats healthier than any other 70-ish woman I know)
You look like a skeleton! ("Friend" - trying on clothes in a dressing room)
Weren't you here not that long ago buying a bunch of Size 8 jeans? (Clerk at The Gap when I had to get Size 6 -- having gone from 12 to 8 to 6 in 5 months)
I could never eat that way. (Friend who's lost and gained the same 40 pounds on a low-carb diet for several years)
Why have you lost 25 pounds since you were last here? Your blood work all looks fine. (Dr. giving me a physical for my new job)
Gain some weight; I like you round. (Soon to be ex-husband)
You're HOW old? No way! (New friend)
Are you dying? (Son - several months ago)
Will you make me a whole batch of those coconut-caramel cookies? (Son - now, even though he is NOT a raw foodist.)
I've been raw, too, for 6 weeks and my cholesteral's down 80 points!Favorite cousin, 6 weeks after I visited him and fixed living foods
You've lost 5 more pounds since Monday? That's too much. Stop now. (Chef Ito of local reknown, last night -- via his own sign language so as not to break his vow of silence -- which is puzzling since I believe my body is doing what it's doing according to its own wisdom, so I hugged him in thanks and went on my way.)
Fun thread!! Thanks!
