I’m a kid sometimes. I cracked up at the word “turd.” But yeah, negative people suck. Congrats on the ill-fitting suit pants, and I’m sure you’ll do just fine keeping it off! 🙂

@JaneyD: “turd”… LOLLL!!!!!!! (I am not sure why this is SO FUNNY to me, but it is. Embarassed)

What a moronic thing for him to say. Even if he really believes that would happen to you, then he should’ve still kept it to himself.

As for your lifestyle change…. congratulations!!!! I am so glad you are feeling the way you do. I am in the same boat. I started working out and eating properly (not always healthy, I’ll admit. But at least 80% of the time or more!) And the change is tremendous in terms of physical health benefits alone! Then you add the emotional health and what not… Congrats on doing such a great job!

You are losing weight in the best way possible – a lifestyle change – NOT a crash diet! If you were just dieting, then yes, you would likely gain it all back (and then some!), but you are super smart and made the whole committment! She may just not be able to fathom being able to do that – or may not be able to tell the difference. Either way, some people just can’t help saying negative things about weddings (like the woman that’s about a foot shorter than me, and overweight, telling me I should “Really start losing weight for your wedding”. Seriously? Some people just don’t filter, or need an outlet for their own insecurities.

Wow what an ass!!!

Unfortunately most coworkers like to remind you to enjoy it while it lasts because you’re going to get fat just like them. Poop on them!!! Poop on them all!!! Rock your lifestyle change!!! Congrats on the weight loss =]

ARGH this is a pet peeve of mine – every time I’d eat anything pre-wedding, I’d get the “oh, you shouldn’t eat that, you have a dress to fit into!!!” comment, and then if I passed on cake at a company birthday party or something, it’d be “oh, she won’t eat cake because she’s got a dress to fit into!!!”

TURDS!!!

@MandaMack:  Is he, himself, a fat man?
