Yep, these new jeans were a gift 4 or 5 years ago, and have been taunting me from my top dresser drawer ever since. Had to do the flat on the bed zip up this morning, but was able to do it again standing in the bathroom here at work. I know TMI, but it's my party and I'll blab if I want to.

There's been a real turn around with peoples attitudes towards me at work, since my coworker and I have been meal prepping and now I have her going to the Farmer's Market with me, etc. Amazing what a 57 1/2 weight loss can do to increase a persons worth in the eyes of the masses.

Not going to rant that my work performance was probably better then, than it is now, because I was totally focused on it instead of all this meal planning, food prepping and eating with a knife & fork that now consumes so much of my time. If that sounds like I'm complaining about my weight loss or the journey to better health that I've been on, I apologize. Truly I'm not. I'm complaining about what a f**ked up world we live in, and how appearance is all that matters.

True, but we know what really matters. Next time you will zip it dancing :-)

YAYY! And regarding people's attitudes .. maybe there is also a pinch of awe/respect for your discipline and results! (OK, maybe there's a bit of naive wishful thinking there, but one can only hope!)

Thank you for speaking out about the systemic mess of measuring worth by appearance.
