It’s been a while since I had an awkward conversation like the one I had today: We were talking about someone who had just given birth. A slim coworker said she weighed 200 lbs during each of her pregnancies and that she hadn’t gained any height. She’s not far off my height and of course 200 lbs is currently my goal weight. I just smiled and nodded and didn’t provoke anyone. Go, me! (The male coworker we were talking to weighs well over 200 lbs as well.)
