    Great stuff, Alexandra!

    PAV - lift those hands right. No excuses. Weight loss. Loose skin. Pfft.

    I lift... it still registers "heat anomalies". No, the effing $#$%#$^# won't just do their #$%#$%#$^@ hand scan before playing 20 tries. I do NOT like the little photo booth!

    Yup - got frisked in Vancouver and Toronto. Either Canada has ultra sensitive scanners or is much more strict in interpreting the scans. Loose skin was confusing because maybe so few people have actually lost enough weight to have surplus skin?

    It’s happened a few times in the US but not in the last three years. Now that I’m officially 75 years old I register as harmless!

    I was thinking more along the lines of "in just xxxx days"* I too will qualify as (mostly) harmless!
    *assuming I don't get smacked by a bus before then

    **does this explain why I don't much like busses?!!?!?! :neutral:

    One of the joys of aging is you no longer have to “play the game”. Dress as you please in ridiculously outdated clothes, ask for favors ( I need to sit down or can I get ahead of you in line?). No work schedule. Outside of way too much time with doctors, it’s all good.
    Basically you just don’t register with people middle-aged or younger - I’m invisible! I do try to not be obnoxious but I’m sure tempted because I’ll be forgiven for being old. Win-win situation!👍

    Another JOY at the start of the holidays.... three years after losing the majority of my weight. My pants fit, coat zip up easily, Christmas sweater fits. Winter gear gets hauled out for only a short time in Texas. It was a toss up whether the stashed clothes would fit after 9 months of waiting. Kind of like pregnancy!

    My weight would usually go up between seasons. Rarely in my yo-yo years could I hope for looser clothes or even be the same size. So to have the same things be wearable is a wonderment.

    I saved a beautiful red coat hubby bought for me right after we married 48 years ago. We moved often and the coat came with me but I never could wear it after our first anniversary. Well I’ve been able to enjoy that coat for the last three years and hopefully many more.

    Both by our most awesome @Yoolypr and by "saved by the knee!"🤣

    I walked into a grocery store needing 2 things (eggs and mashed potatoes). I walked out with eggs and mashed potatoes. My diet and wallet are happy.

    Yes, good job…I can’t go into any store without coming out with a cart full!
