@Janie - oh how interesting! Thank you for your reply. I hope my issues go away like yours did.
Regarding the coworkers - I’m not sure what that is about, but I feel like it is more about me being more equal to them, rather than the lower status obese woman that I am “supposed” to be.
I feel that my cat does this to me too, LOL. She shows me who’s boss (nothing to do with weight loss, just life with cats).
