It seems the people in my life are getting bigger. The people I used to see as skinny, tiny, petite are now… fat, large, lumpy. I’m sure it’s my perception and not reality. Everyone around me can’t be gaining weight at once, right? Of course I still feel like the largest of them all, and I’ve been losing weight. I’m almost back down to my lowest adult weight. Four pounds to go.
So why do I feel like I’m taking up more space, expanding exponentially even while the number on the scale goes down? It’s like dragging yourself toward a finish line that is sprinting in the opposite direction.
