You’re only human. Me too. Don’t sweat it king/queen/they. No one is harder on you than you, and I’m sure you look delightful to the many friends and coworkers who have missed you for the last year and a half

Don’t sweat it. Get some new clothes that fit your new body for the time being, and work on getting back to your pre-pandemic weight, if that would make you feel more comfortable. Honestly, people really only notice some extra weight when your clothes don’t fit well! Good luck, and for what it’s worth, I’m sure no one will really notice all that much anyway

My BMI is right on the edge of normal/overweight so I’m extra motivated to start working out more regularly! We can all get back to our desired weights but it takes a lot of work so you have to really want it.

Yep. Me and my couple of colleagues volunteered to go back. All work clothes are snug and we are doing keto together

I’ve only worked on tech transformations for clients in one specific industry throughout my whole career. All projects have been almost the same. Is this a disadvantage for mba applications, or is it a pro since I show deep expertise in a certain area? I only really stayed on these types of projects because that’s where my network took me.
