Random weight comments

Friday, May 18, 2018

I am over 200 pounds. I am aware of this fact. I struggle greatly every day with it. I do not like it when people who know I am struggling just randomly talk about others weight loss to me. like this conversation with a colleague:

him: *comes out of his office* my wife lost 7 pounds"
me:oh yeah?
him: yeah, that's good, right?
me: yes
him: She lost it since she started dieting.
me: *crickets*
him: I heard the first 10 pounds are really easy to come off, then it gets really hard
me: I wouldn't know...I haven't lost 10 pounds.

WHY would someone just come up to me and SAY that? Maybe I am being too sensitive, but I found this to be not only unexpected, but unsolicited and unnecessary. It borders on rude.
What, exactly, was he trying to tell me...?

I will NOT let him get me down. People like that are NOT worthy of my attention or emotions. Happy thoughts, happy Friday.

    Keep pushing forward trying to include you in his happiness. Just my opinion I weighed 428 at first got my feeling hurt very easily. Very self conscious about my weight.
