Yesterday afternoon, I had to go offsite for work. I go to this particular location once a month. My work friend there has been so happy for me and my continued weight loss progress.

While I was doing my presentation, one of the female executives who I run into on occasion asked my work friend who was in the room doing the presentation. My friend was like, that's Luka. And the exec was like, Luka from Corporate? And my friend was like, yeah. And the exec was like, I didn't even recognize her! She looks so different!

And apparently, that wasn't the only person to make an inquiry of my work friend about me. Another woman that I see every month asked my work friend if I was "ok" because I had lost so much weight. She was concerned. I don't see having lost 60ish pounds in a year as unhealthy or excessive, but whatev's. At least it was friendly concern!

It's just weird that all of a sudden, people are beginning to notice. It has taken 60+ pounds for people to notice that I've lost weight. I think part of it is changing my hair. People notice that something is different, but they don't know what--so they latch onto the hair, because that's the most obvious thing they notice.

Anyways, it's a bit of a NSV for this week!



  1. Congrats!

    You know, before surgery, my dad told me I needed to tell people, because when I started losing weight people would worry about me, there would be rumors (like HIV or cancer). I thought he was crazy, but sure enough, people started to ask if I was sick and if I was okay...smh.
