i wonder why I need so much external validation for this project, among others. It has suddenly really started bothering me that nobody at work has said anything about my noticeable loss - 8 kg for a 1.57 cm tall person is quite a lot! Maybe it's the culture here; I mean, I am well liked at work, but people don't really discuss their personal lives much with work colleagues. Also, I don't actually have a team, as I am mostly independent, though I do interact with a bunch of people quite closely. I miss the friendships I've had with my previous teams.
Why do I care? My husband has certainly noticed, and I feel a lot better in my physical being. I know I'm healthier. Why do I mind one way or the other what my colleagues say or don"t? On the flip side, nobody ever comments that somebody gained weight, either, and especially not to women who are still in their childbearing years.
Why is this important to me? Isn't the actual result enough? Am I really so vain?
