So, yeah... my sister (part trois)
I meant to post this earlier, but since I was out dating... :)
My sister called late last week, and we were chatting about non-incidentals. And then she started asking: "How much weight have you lost? What do you weigh now? Are you still losing? Are you still under 200?"
I was ducking and weaving like a prize fighter, trying hard not to answer. It was easier for my mom to do it when she was being asked because it could be believed that we don't really talk about it. But being asked outright is something else altogether, obviously.
The best I could do was say stuff like, "You know, weight goes and weight comes back," or, "I've been in a holding pattern for a while" (true). I really disliked being put on the spot like that and having her ask me, especially since I know the only reason she really cares is because she's worried about us all getting together in five weeks and me maybe looking better than her.
