Good point, Nelie ... no explanation is needed.

I've responded to the splurge comments by saying, "Yeah, we all do deserve a splurge, and as evidenced by my current weight, I banked a few of those splurges for future use and don't need any more right now".

Lindsay, I think your insights are correct - about the unconscious comfort of being "not the fattest one". It was a sad eye-opener for me to discover that my closest friends pulled out the heaviest ammo for sabotage, and I even became much less close with one friend because of it.
