You go girl! Don't obsess over the weight loss though; it's not entirely under your control. Everything else is, so you're good.
Okay, that NOTE TO SELF made me giggle. I'm shallow that way.

But I have noticed that I've become a little less invisible than I was before. Not that I'm getting stared at, but the eyes don't slide past quite as quickly as they did before. Maybe it's just my imagination though, who knows?
What I really don't like is people joking around and telling my husband that he had better be careful or somebody will steal me away. He's been a little psyched out by my success, I think (although he is down 20 pounds from his peak a couple of years ago), and I don't need anybody feeding his insecurities. I've started commenting back, to counteract it. I know it's a joke, but seriously, do people think I was faithful to my husband only because I didn't have other options? Besides, anybody who would try to steal somebody else's wife is a slimebucket, and I am not at all attracted to slimebuckets.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
