So, very quietly, I’ve started limited my food intake again to no carbs, no sugar. I haven’t told anyone except my family. I just decided it was time again.
This time it’s not personal; it’s business.
As wonderful as the new movement toward fat acceptance and health-at-every-size enthusiasts are, the rotten truth is people judge you when you’re fat. You’re either discriminated against, you’re judged as inferior, or you’re simply invisible (which really is the worst).
I’ve been working too hard on my startup to sabotage my success. I decided I have to look better to get the respect I deserve. Does it piss me off? Yes. Do men have this problem? Not really.
Alas, here I am.
So far so good, however. I’ve made the mental commitment to do it and have lost about 20 pounds. It’s hard for others to tell, but I can tell.
And I feel better, so there’s that. I will write here occasionally. I’m interested in where this is headed and what I learn from the experience.
