And we have a winner!

Someone (without any foreknowledge) finally mentioned my weight loss. I was beginning to think it wasn't going to ever happen.

My theories:
- Weight is a taboo subject.
- The change is subtle and gradual.
- Guys don't talk about weight.

The winner hadn't seen me in a while, so perhaps that helps.

Yep, it is taboo...right along with "Are you pregnant?" You should REALLY be sure before you bring up either of those topics.

Weight gain is gradual too, but somehow that isn't easy to miss. I wonder what the difference is.

I'm proud of you, and I know you feel better.

I had the same experience - it IS an odd feeling - took well over 20# for a coworker to finally "notice." (Years back - not a current experience unfortunately.) I figure they're waiting to be sure you're not just yoyo-ing before they dare comment. :)

Try "skinny jeans." You have to get the studded belt to go with, from what I understand.
