It should get interesting then. I do understand them, my SIL has yoyoed up and down so many times, I've stopped commenting. All her weights look normal, although she doesn't usually stay thin very long. She's now heading towards vegetarian, low-fat... Wouldn't eat my pasta salad at the last family BBQ (I was urgently requested to make it) because of the avocado, not because of the pasta. I don't argue with her. When you beat your head against a wall, it's your head that loses. If she ever loses it and stays thin for six months or a year, THEN I will be impressed. I know she can lose it. So yes, when you break past their expectations, they will sit up and take notice.

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.
