I got a ton of compliments on this photo of me online:

And while I was very flattered by the comments, I want to be clear: I don't consider losing weight, or looking "thinner," an accomplishment.

The truth is that I haven't lost weight. I weigh the most that I've weighed in my adult life! But I love every inch of my body, regardless.

What about you, how do you feel about weight loss? Is it something to celebrate, or not a big deal?
