    You give up on using a regular lunch bag to bring your food to work and switch to a reusable grocery bag.
     
    Your mixing bowls forget they were once used to prepare cookie dough, instead have been repurposed as massive salad bowls … for one.

    Oh man, I love this string! More laughter, horror, and drama than the Oscars.
    I talked to one of my (obese) coworkers about what I was doing the other day, as he pulled out his "healthy" lunch of a box of Wheat Thins, flavored yogurt, and pretzels. It was so sad and ironic that he was telling me his "really healthy" roommate was pushing him to eat better and this was her approved food! And obviously she knows better because she's really skinny and works out 2+ hours a day.
    Back in college (before I knew what a whole food was!) a friend came over and made these sugar-bomb rum-spiked smoothies. I was asking her what she put in them and she kept saying, "don't worry about it, they're low fat!" I tried to explain that a 300-calorie sugar bomb does not a healthy snack make, but she just kept repeating "low fat" until I gave up and had some wine instead.
    My MIL at every family gathering: "Oh, you can have a little bit. Just one bite. It won't hurt anything ..."
    And I picture the overweight, sick, zombie sugar army staggering to the chorus of, "Join us ... join us ..."

    DH and I are 30, but we lead a college aged group at church.
    When we started the year, DH had about 50 lbs to lose (per his doctor's request... and I know, I know, it's just a number) and I had about 70 to lose.  We are both doing really well with our whole food/real food lifestyle changes and have each lost more than 30 lbs.  However, we don't really talk about this - it's just been our private thing.
     
    Last week, a lot of people seemed to be taking notice of our weight loss.  We thanked them for the compliments and went on with our discussion, but the kids proceeded to try and make recommendations for us - we should try biking, have we thought about joining a gym, why have we cut this out, etc. etc.
    We just let them talk.
     
    When we were in college, we were skinny minis, too.  We ate take out and pizza and all kinds of junk food, sodas all day every day...  and we thought we were healthy because we weren't overweight, too.  What we have learned is that the S.A.D. catches up with you eventually, and that just because you are thin doesn't mean you are healthy...
     
    We are healthier now, still being overweight, than we have been in years.  DH and I just smile and, after the kids have left, we say to each other that you can't argue with our results... and we are doing just fine.

    Overheard in the lunch room: Woman1: what are you eating for lunch? Woman2: Just some vegetables. Woman1: Oh, are you on that new diet your nutritionist recommended? Woman2: no, I just ... Wanted to eat vegetables. Woman1: *confused look* Really, if the woman was eating a plate of Mac and cheese or something there would be no question about it. But load a plate up with veggies and it's all, "what are you eating?!?"

    I just started making my own Kombucha a little over a month ago. I've also made two perfect Scoby's following the information in the link above (I hope it works). Super easy, and my Kombucha is delicious. Thanks for getting this started.
