Have a new one... I had to take a decent work headshot for our internal IM and network. This was after replacing my badge picture two weeks ago. Two weeks ago I got questioned on my costco card not looking at me.

Traveling in a few weeks and just had a panic moment about how much my DL or passport don’t really look a lot like me.


I am overseas at the moment on vacation and when passing though China you have to scan your passport and look into a camera. I was rejected 3 times by the machine. A worker had to come over and verify it was me because i have lost so much weight. They let me right though of course but it did affect my travel in the smallest of ways!

I had one this week too. I went to get my bloodwork done for my follow up next week. Last time I did this it was a tight squeeze to get the arm rest down over my belly. Plenty of room this time! The phlebotomist didn’t really understand my excitement to be in her chair LOL 😂

I had one this past week. I have been buying business class seats to travel for years because of my size and never wanting to be embarrassed or kicked off a flight. I've always had seat belt extensions as well. I took my first economy flight in years and fit in the seat and the seat belt actually fastened without an extension. Great feeling!

Yeah, I was planning some upcoming business travel and was offered a cheap upgrade to first class and thought “...but do I NEED it?”

I’ve been on two flights post-surgery where I’ve been in the middle seat and it’s been...well, maybe not comfortable, but not horrible, either.

I started measuring myself because the scale will stall and I don't want that to be how I measure success. I started measuring two weeks ago and have lost 9 inches total since then.

This past weekend my wife and I went to the movies. I was so nervous because I reserved the "cuddling" seats. The last time I did that years ago my wife was pressed up in that chair like it was a clown car. I was so big. This time, room to spare and lots of cuddles!

Yesterday I bought pants in a size I cannot remember wearing since high school. To say I was excited would be an understatement. It still feels surreal. :)

The earliest I remember caring about the size shorts I wore was around age 12, which would have been around 1996/1997. I was a size 14. I have never since been that size again. Now, it's very possible that size inflation/vanity sizing occurred over the past 22 years, and that I'm not truly a size 12-14 (depending on style) now, but I'm with you! It feels amazing to be wearing sizes I never thought I'd be in again.
