Throw it right back to them. Say "why do you ask?"
They say- because you look so great, so thin, so healthy.
You say- thank you! And how are YOU feeling??

It can be a fun cat and mouse game. And frankly, pressuring you is rude and NYB (Not your business.)export6606510265897150916.jpg

My standard answer is “a lot” and if they persist I say something like “twelve pounds” then when they are like no seriously, I say “ok you got me it’s actually 13 pounds”.

I can keep this up all day.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
