I attended a Retirement Celebration for a colleague at work today. What a great time - I sipped on water, passed on the snacks, treats, cakes, and champagne, with ease - just did not give any of it a second thought, and enjoyed (for the first time in years) mingling and talking with friends and colleagues, rather than being a wall flower, and parking in a chair in a corner for the duration and thinking about leaving the whole time. A number of people did not recognize me when I said hello, and then sought me out to tell me they did not know it was me. I guess that's a new NSV! I responded to lots of questions - "how did you do it," "how much weight have you lost," "how many calories do you eat every day," "what kind of protein do you eat," and so forth. It's been a good day!
