      I measured in at 6'5" a while ago. Now I'm 6'4" MEASURED.
      In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

      • That's funny, I've had someone tell me I looked taller. And then, during a doctor's visit last week the nurse measured me, and said I was 6'3", which is ridiculous. I've been 6 feet tall since I was a teenager. She did something wrong. I did come home and measure, and suddenly I'm 6' 1/2". Where did that half-inch come from? Maybe I'm not as slouchy since I have a lot less gut?

          Maybe those pounds aren't weighing you (or me) down anymore! I know that I hold my head a little higher, walk a little straighter, make eye contact more, etc. etc. etc....

          Along with the width measurement shrinking, wouldn't it be like Kimelah said -- the optical illusion (at least) should be of increased height.

          Alex -- try to figure out where you lost that inch... where was the last place you remember having it?
          Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
          Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
          Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

          • It is getting increasingly harder to eat out (which I don't do often, but still). I literally had a 5 minute exchange with the deli lady the other day about a bread-less sandwich. I ordered a roast beef sandwich with mustard and horseradish, no bread. Her brain nearly exploded. She finally ended with, "you can just throw the bread out."

            Yesterday I went to meet some friends at Starbucks for coffee and to chat since we haven't gotten together in a while. I love the idea of a pumpkin spice latte, but even before I changed my diet, it was wayyyyy too sweet. I ordered the pumpkin spice latte, but only half of the latte and "just fill the rest up with regular coffee." I figured that would dilute it enough to enjoy a subtle pumpkin flavor. Queue brains exploding all over Starbucks. I was all "Literally make a small pumpkin spice latte, pour it in a large cup....and top it off with coffee. Done." Finally, after much explanation, the guy making my coffee finally talked me into a modified pumpkin spice latte - only half of the pumpkin spice syrup. It was good, but still a little sweet for my tastes.

            Why is it so difficult to understand? I feel like I try to explain it and people still don't get it.

              Lol. Yeah. Since I've given up dairy (a common thing autistic people should do) I don't drink coffee any more so I can't say I go to starbucks. I just don't understand our need for coffee? If you want to stay up all night... eat some healthy whole grains! That should keep your mind racing, plus you'll be constipated ALL NIGHT LONG.

              Anyway, back on topic, I'm always THAT guy when I go to restaurants. I order liver with a side of bacon and everyone at the table looks at me like "EW LIVER, that's GROSS MAN." "Aren't you gonna get a heart attack with all that fat?" Shrug. I want my b12. When you're stuck with alzheimers disease, I'll be lifting at 70. Forget CW, I'm content.

              Man you should see the look on my mother in law's face. She believes her aunt more than she believes proper tested peer reviewed medical science.

              Funny how even basic CW logic isn't even practiced.

              Also, this is what people see when I eat bacon:

                Kind of like asking for the "heavy cream" and they insist on putting lots of non-fat stuff instead? I now pronounce clearly "heavy whipping cream".

                  Most places that ive been to around here dont even HAVE heavy whipping cream. Half and Half is the best I can do. Sometimes I get a small carton of cream from a corner market before I go into a coffee shop and cream it myself. (heh)

                      Definitely true! I'm still quite plump, but I have much more confidence, and I'm sure I'm standing up a lot straighter!

                      I was out of town last week and went to a coffee place by my hotel. Before I even ordered I asked if they had heavy cream, and they said yes, it's on the counter. I go to put it in, and it's only half-n-half. They had no cream Apparently they did not understand the words coming out of my mouth. The next day I found a French café and they had the best, heaviest, heavy cream I've ever had. I've noticed lately that I do much better with raw or at least pastured cream, conventional doesn't make me feel so good, and doesn't taste as good either.

                          Having worked at Starbucks, this shouldn't have been difficult with baristas that knew what they were doing!

                          Perhaps next time, try ordering a Venti Misto with a shot of espresso and 1 (or just a half) pump of the syrup. This will give you what you're after. By default it will be made with 2%, so specify what type of milk you want! (Single venti, 1 pump PS, <milk>, cafe misto)

                          This thread was one of the first I read (along with the Before/after pics!) and it gave me a headstart on just smiling and nodding at people and their diet choices and opinions. I really don't bother giving suggestions unless they're actually interested! Keep them coming.

                          I'll add that I had a bit of a moment in the break room, as it's past Halloween and now there's candy everywhere. I can easily pass by them with no worries, but a coworker came in and exclaimed "Why do they do this! Bringing candy in, I shouldn't eat them!" and proceeded to do just that, picking from the bag of chocolate sweets.

                            i love putting heavy cream in my coffee, but whenever i ask for it at my local coffee shop, they always look at me like i have ten heads. they probably think im weird for wanting to put that in my coffee (it has so much fat! how could you possibly want that!?), but is it possibly taboo to put something like heavy cream in coffee? like, for "coffee purists," is it offensive to put something as strong as heavy cream in coffee?

                              Nope. Everything that people usually put in their coffee is either a lower-fat or synthetic approximation of cream. Cream is the original.

                              Side note: My wife's friend lived in NYC for a while and loved the hot chocolate at this one particular place (a truck or cart, perhaps?). Eventually she found out it was made with equal parts half-n-half and heavy whipping cream, plus the cocoa and sweetener. It sounds delicious.

                                I used to make comments like that all the time. I though it was funny because I don't appear fat. Now I don't think such a lack of self restraint is funny, I think it's sad, because that person's mind is so warped.

                                Sometimes I just get really pessimistic about the SAD and CW and I don't want to laugh at these people because 1. I was like them once and 2. laughing at ignorance is one of the worst things you can do.
