bras & weight loss  

I have, through no particular effort of my own, lost somewhere between 20-25 pounds in the past year. Mostly it’s just that I’ve been eating less. Not well, certainly, just less. Not exercising more, either. Just eating less. Basically for the first time in my life I’ve been stress not-eating instead of stress eating.

Anyway, so I’ve lost a fair amount of weight, and my bras have not been fitting well at all.

So a week or two ago I bought new bras, and people suddenly started saying, “Wow, you’ve lost so much weight!” Which, well, yes, that’s true, but since it didn’t all drop off at once, it’s clear that what they’re actually reacting to is the fact that my boobs are a lot higher than they were before, and the overall effect that has.

I thought that was pretty funny. :)

Maybe people are too polite or nervous to say 'your breasts are levitating' instead?

It would never have occurred to me that "You've lost weight!" could function as a synonym for "Your breasts are levitating!". But now I know. I am grateful.

well they're not pneumatic!

Not pneumatic maybe, but perhaps they're made of cavorite or some other gravity defying substance. Quite why one would make cavorite breasts escapes me at the moment, but I'm sure I'll think of a reason eventually. It does save on undergarment costs I suppose.
