Same here Ruth Ann and ems.

For me it is both when people go on and on about it... And when they ask 'how much have you lost' and I say about 50 lbs... It makes me feel bad, because both things mean I was kind of gross before. I know some of it is what's in my head but I'd almost prefer no one said anything

Weight is truly a weighty issue.

Happy IP day to all!
