SparkPeople as another alternative to gastric bypass...and affairs
Saturday, January 10, 2015
It was in the fall of 2013...A co-worker showed up looking like a fraction of the woman she used to be, and she credited it to the Lapband or one of those alternative gastric bypass procedures. She recommended it to me, as I weighed 225 at the time.
I brought home the idea to my family, and I was soundly rejected.
This fall, 2014, I am the one that showed up at work after the summer looking like a fraction of my old self. Of course, my co-worker smiled and approached with the assumption that I had gotten the procedure she had recommended to me. She was astonished when I credited SparkPeople, tracking calories, and exercising with my transformation. She walked away in disbelief.
I have lost a few noticeable sizes more since the fall, and my co-worker again probed me about gastric bypass, clearly needing clarification that I did not have a procedure. I showed her my eyelashes, and mentioned that on NYE, I had synthetic eyelashes put on for FUN, but I reiterated that I had lost 66 pounds between Jan. 2014 and Jan. 2015 with SparkPeople, not surgery.
She still doesn't believe me, and as she started to walk away, she retorted, "You're having an affair, aren't you?"
I didn't answer her, but I told my husband that I am having an AFFAIR with someone on SparkPeople--ME!
