I'm going to heed the sage advice of my fellow weight-lossers and ease away from the daily weigh-ins right now.
It is depressing me that SOD bounced UP several pounds this week, despite almost zero off-plan eating, and decent (not great) exercise. It probably is stress -- and I think a respite is due.
I'm so stressed that I can't turn my neck to the right -- seem to have reactivated an old pinched nerve down my neck. Ow.
Apropos of nothing, should I be offended that a colleague of mine, one I do not know well and have spoken to only a few times on work-related issues, Facebooked me out of the blue to invite me to a Biggest Loser TV show weight loss event? Er, ex-squeeze me?
Wait, wait -- I know what you're going to say, he probably didn't meant it to be offensive, maybe even has noticed I've lost weight and was trying to include me in something helpful, etc etc.
It's true. I should not automatically prickle over such things.
But it's a kneejerk reaction, I guess.
Anyone else feel like they've spent their life -- their fat life anyway, for those who haven't always been larger -- fending off people who just assume that you, being heavy, must be unhappy with yourself and constantly dieting?
Anyone? Bueller, Bueller?
