    I got a phone call from my grandmother earlier to tell me that in the car on the way back from the airport (we saw my sister off back to Gibraltar this morning) my grandfather told her that I've definitely lost weight.

    This is itself doesn't sound that great but coming from him, a man of very few words and even fewer compliments, it meant a lot. He did follow it up with a warning that she needs to keep an eye on me to ensure that I don't develop bulimia though... wtf?!

    Anyway, I just thought it was very sweet of him, even if it did take almost 3 stone for him to notice lol!

    That must have made you're day hearing this..Good for you :)

    My mum came around the other day and said that when I went to there's to watch the footy last week after I left my dad got very excited and happy that he could tell I was losing weight, I was so happy as I know my Dad is so so worried about my weight so is the rest of my family but my Dad has worried so much in the past he has always said that he is scared to death that one of his children could possibly die before he does, And at one point that was so true as I was close to 32 stones 3 years ago..So I think he is so relieved now and that makes me happy to :):)

    It's a great feeling when people start noticing :p

    Thats so lovely, and the bulimia thing is really sweet too in a way, cos he probably doesn't know much about it but is just wanting you to be ok.

    I'm sure more people will be noticing now cos you have lost loads, so long as you aren't hiding your new figure in baggy clothes?

    Gemma, bless the older generation! I was nice that he noticed though.

    I had a compliment at the last barbeque I went to when the husband of the couple hosting it told me I was looking good. I don't know why it meant so much, just that he was a bloke I suppose and I really didn't think he noticed or cared! Helped that he was nice looking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
