Comments: Planet Bones: Fluff and Bus Rides

Bones had me ROTFLMAO. Being that my kids ride the public bus... I could so see this happening. And someone DID notice you lost weight. I guess I don't count *sniff sniff*. ;-)

You should have seen Ringo's face when he was telling us the story. It was incredulous. "Wait. Did you ASK the bus driver to pull over???" He said, 'No! It was a bus stop!" and Ringo said, "But... you GOT OFF THE BUS?!!!" Heh.

I should have been less... emphatic. Most aren't noticing. And it doesn't bother me in the least. 15 pounds is over 10% of my body weight, yet... it's not a huge difference.

Unless someone doesn't see you regularly (by that I mean if they only see you a couple times a year) they probably won't notice the weight loss. It's hard to see someone everyday and notice a slow weight loss.

I've lost 17 pounds since May (wonders what not being at home with food around 24/7 can do for you) and only my sister has noticed.

So big congrats on the weight loss, it's a huge deal!!!!

Peanut butter and jelly and marshmallow sandwich? And CARROTS?? I don't think any of those things even belonged in the same sentence. Blech.

Congrats on the weight loss! I know only too well how difficult it can be - and how rewarding. Unfortunately I also know how horrible it feels to ... gain some of it back!

And hey! PB&Marshmallow sandwiches are comfort food.

Hmmm...maybe that explains the weight re-gain. :-)

Note that he ate the sandwich despite the feeling of nausea. This expresses the relationship teenage boys have with food.

Also, it's been cold lately in Seattle. I walk around the house half naked (no heat on), and I've noticed that when I cook something, my toes get cold. This is because my kitchen has a tile floor. So my latest luxury is to keep a towel in the kitchen to stand on.

Ya know, I'm kind of proud of myself. I started this before Thanksgiving and I thought it would be tough and really... it hasn't. I'm doing pretty good. But the best is, I feel good about NOT putting it back on. That's a first.

Carl- Your observation between teens and their food... it wins some sort of award. That was dang funny.

OMG PB&Fluff - I gag just thinking about that. I remember kids liking that years ago and I always felt there was something wrong with me because I hated it. LOL.

Major congrats on the weight loss! That's fantastic. I think QW is right - people around you every day are less likely to notice. Of course then there are people like me who notice nothing at all (including mismatched clothes, earrings, etc).
