90.3kg, I can totally deal with that. Seeing as I could not seem to budge that 89.8kg, I've only gained 500g. I actually got really teary this morning when I saw this number because I was so relieved to see I hadn't done too much damage.

I even got hit on by one of the people from my favourite shows during the panel. I was totally okay with that
Hey sweety, it's so good to be back! And good to see you back as well. I know together we can get through this tough time and come out on top! I am so relieved that this new medication does not seem to be affecting my weight, which means I can get even better results now hopefully!

People do compliment you along the journey (as Josie has done) to encourage you.
What is often missed though is because they want to keep it positive that they don't want to "bring you down to earth".
We who are losing weight (or have done so) understand just how much more is before us on this journey (I'm sure Josie understands this fully from her own experience).
Remember this is all well meaning on people's part...
the best practise is smile graciously, thank them and say under your breath - "it ain't over yet!"
These photos are great motivation and help us see how far we have come. But they also serve a duel purpose...once you have reached goal weight you will see fully just how much it was only part of the way in this journey. It will be a greater reminder of just how very far you have come!
