I met up with some ex-coworkers last night. Nobody noticed that I lost weight, so I mentioned my 30 pound loss. She said her and her bf had gained it. She said she can’t see my loss, because I’m wearing the same clothes. Which is kinda true. She offered me her old sized 12, but I’m already a 10, which I have none of, so I’ll just wear baggy 12s until I can fit into size 8. She thinks she’s mostly gained because of domestic bliss (shacking up), a 30 minute commute each way, no exercise other than doggy walks, and crappy eating and drinking. I might also add, even more importantly, that they quit smoking, which is probably the biggest impact. I will have to face this soon, and I’m not looking forward to it. It will likely stop any weight loss in its tracks.
Anyway, I was examining my tummy last night. It used to flop over, now it still sticks out, but it goes down at about 45°, which means there’s no folds there anymore, unless I’m sitting down, and then there’s an overhang. Another thing I’m wondering about-if I’m size 10, and she’s size 14, can it really be that I’m thinner than her? She looks less lean, maybe even a bit stocky, but definately not chubby. I am chubby, though no longer obese. I’m getting so confused. She’s a few inches taller, so maybe that skews sizes? I’m tired of thinking about this stuff. Bored, irritated, angry that it takes up so much of my life. Speaking of life, I’m going to try and develop one-like a real, non-computer type fun life. Wish me luck!
