I don't think it was meant to be an insult

This was never intended to be a horror story - more of a humorous event with a bit of self reflection on the topic.

So, the original coffee date that inspired this - I liked him, but when I refused the offer of a cocktail at his place on our first date, the evening ended abruptly and i didn't hear anymore. I thought...oh well, that is fine. I think he is genuine, just has a different expectation of the pace of things etc.

Anyway, I found out about an event going on in around 2 weeks that is a common interest and I knew none of my pals would want to go. I texted him and asked if he was up for bringing the dogs to this festival and he was quite enthusiastic to make the plans. I am feeling the friend zone thing, but, I have an open mind. I have met a few interesting guys recently and am just keeping it light with all of them.

I just thought it was sort of funny to have the reaction about my photos... and people do sometimes say the oddest things. It did touch a certain nerve as well - that little bit of self doubt. However, i am self reflective and pretty aware that my appearance has nothing to do with any of this.

I didn't think it was a horror story, the thread morphed into one...not that you have ever posted about that ;-)

Indeed, I have met some characters, but everyone referred to here appears to be on their meds, stable, any criminal history well behind him and generally pleasant enough sorts. The really eerie part is none of them are boring - so all in all things are starting off well! Summer is my season of recreation so if I haven't settled on someone to see in a few months...I'll let it fade away while I enjoy my summer. For now, this is going pretty ok.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
