Stupid Questions?

I get lot's and lot's of comments now a days. I guess at my weight range I had to lose 100lbs before people (those who didn't know about the surgery) really start to notice. Here's the lamest one yet:
Saturday in the salon a lady came up to me and said how much different I look since she saw me last and just had to ask a few questions about it. I told her I had Gastric Bypass surgery at the end of April. She said she knew someone who had that done also but hers didn't go so well, she thought the lady had it done in a small town a couple of hours outside of the city where we live. This lady really just hit me the wrong way (like she was gossiping about the lady she knew) so I just went right in lieing mode. I told her I also had my surgery done at that town at the Vet college that is there. I told her they do an experimental surgery that is having HUGE success. I said that they take one of the stomach's from a cow, since they have 2 they don't even have to kill the cow. I said there's an enzyme in the cows stomach that process' food so fast that you don't absorb the calories from the food. She said that sound so cool, how do I feel? I said that I get alittle sick to my stomach every now and then but if I chew on raw grass (organic of course) it really seems to settle the nausea. She just kept going on and on about how cool it is.
I finally told her I'm totally full of shit and she was really embarrassed for falling for it.

100 lbs down

I weighed in yesterday and it was a VERY magic. I'm down 100lbs. I've gone from 4X shirts to 2x and my pants have gone from 50 inch waist to a 44 inch waist (although 46 are a bit more comfortable, ha ha). I haven't done a "measurement check", I thought I would wait until I'm down 200lbs before I add up those numbers.
I'm still going to the gym 4 days a week and working out with Jesse 2 of those days. He gives a new meaning to "rode hard and put away wet", I have a hard time walking to my car when he is done with me. My legs are shaky for days afterwards. And somehow he keeps me coming back for more. He hasn't yelled at me yet, for that I'm thankful.
I'm thinking my bout with throwing up has finally moved on, it's been a couple of weeks since I've thrown up. I do have bouts of nausea every now and then, but they don't last long and are more than worth it.
