Now that I've reached my initial goal, and because I look thinner, people feel the need to suggest to me that I have "lost enough now" or that I "shouldn't go too far, you'll look ill" or similar comments.
Without wanting to say "mind your own business" because I've made it everyone's business by asking for sponsorship, by blogging about it, by going on about it endlessly to anybody who doesn't move out of range of my shouting distance, I tend to say to people that I am still way above a healthy BMI. Which usually elicits the response that "well, BMIs are rubbish anyway".
At this point I suggest to people that if they could see my belly, and I add that they never will see my belly, they would understand why I still want to lose some more weight if I can. I'm not going to be upset if I don't lose more but there is a reason.
And now might be the time for you to look away.
I was doing "planks" to try to tone up my stomach, and as I did them I looked down the length of my body and saw that my man boobs were hanging down in a weird way and between them I could see my belly hanging down in a most hideous way.
You may have to get your head around the orientation of this picture, but this is what I saw...
(Look away now if you are eating food)
If you didn't look away...well, I did warn you. And hopefully you now understand why I would like to lose a little more. So support me and sponsor me!
