Two things I’d like to celebrate on my part this time round. As @admin says, we often don’t reflect and post victory threads often enough.
Victory number 1 - Throughout my adult life, growing up with the lads, I was always ‘the big guy’ of the group, I’ve probably had all the nicknames you can think of. These names weren’t malicious, but like the extra pounds I was carrying they always weighed me down.
This weekend, it was one of those lads 30th birthday, so the whole gang met up. We’ve reached that age now when metabolism has slowed, life has had that habit of getting in the way resulting in people letting themselves go a bit. Low and behold, I’m no longer the big guy in the group! My weight loss combined with a bit of extra padding some of them are now carrying mean I’m just a guy rather than ‘the big guy’
Rather shallow I know, but my word, it felt great.
The second one - For the first time in my adult life, I own and fit in clothing sized ‘Medium’. I feel a mass sort through of clothing and donation is in order.
