And laugh it off if I truly put on a pound or two
Even when I have accidentally put on a little weight, I’ve laughed it off. I mean—I aimed to do something about it. But I wasn’t going to mope about it and let it ruin my life until I lost the weight. And I wasn’t going to take drastic, unhealthy measures to lose the weight. Again, I did have friends try to tell me unhealthy ways to lose the weight quickly, I didn’t take the advice, and they were offended.
