The questions have started
So, I don't know if it took 50lbs for people to notice or if they are just now getting the nerve to start asking questions but in the past week it has become an almost daily thing at work. You know, that question. The "How are you losing so much weight?" question. I answer the same way to all of them, "I am exercising and using portion control". Which is true but I always feel a little bad about omitting the part about the electric shock collar around my stomach that zaps me if I eat the wrong thing or too much food. I only feel a little bad because as you all know the band only works if you follow the rules and it is only an aid not some magic pill. My friend at work that knows about the band told me that what I tell the others is still the truth and to not worry about it but my question to myself is when am I going to let the fat out of the bag and tell others about my band. After thinking about it all weekend I determined that once I am about 100lbs down and know that I am totally rocking the band thing I will feel confident enough to share my secret. I would just be so mortified if I told them all now, here at the start, and then failed. I would have to quit my job and move to another country! Anyways, how do all of you handle the "how are you losing it"question?
