I want to post before and after body shots because YOU GUYS. But a) how unprofessional and b) the after isn’t really the after yet, I’m still going. But, I’ve moved from obese to overweight. Plus size section to regular section. Forty pounds gone. Forty more to go.
Strangers are way nicer to me these days. I actually know what it’s like to get flirted with (rarely) now. It’s odd to have eye contact suddenly lasting longer. To feel eyes on you more often. An introvert’s nightmare. I have to learn how to politely cut that shit out. That’s the only really frightening part…I grew up fat. I stayed fat. It was never hard to avoid male attention. Now I don’t know how to deal with things when a guy is being a little too insistent, and it makes me feel like a dumb kid who can’t process words and emotions.
Hopefully things keep going smoothly. At the end of this year I turn thirty. I’d really like to know what it’s like to be a healthy, average weight before that.
