Walmart Cashier

This evening I went to my local Walmart to pick up some items.
I proceeded to the check out lane, wrote a check, and handed my license to the cashier.
Here is how our conversation went:

Cashier: Wow, you are a lot heavier in this picture.

Me: Why yes I am.

Cashier: I mean a lot heavier.

Me: Yes about 45 pounds heavier to be exact.

Cashier: Wow, you have lost that much.

Me: (Looking at my picture) Yup, see that double chin there (pointing to picture) It's gone.

Cashier: Good for you.

Me: Thanks.

I proceeded to leave the store and wanted to scream with excitement, but I contained myself. This was a huge milestone in my journey. A very exciting one. A cashier at a store noticed my weight loss. I'm doing it. I'm on my way and nothing can stop me now.

Good for you Melissa! I've been following your weight loss and have been meaning to let you know how GREAT you are doing. That is such an achievement and when people are noticing (even people you don't know) it's even better. Keep up the good work.
