I'm sure you have noticed what a HUGE difference weight loss makes in those Spark People who have gotten down to their goal weight and they post BEFORE and AFTER photos. They ALWAYS look years younger when they have gotten the weight off. So, I know you will keep working hard to get to your goal. Your friend will be surprised when she sees you again. And of course, if you color your hair so the gray doesn't show, that certainly takes away a LOT of years.
Just let it roll... .or think that maybe her concept of "older" was "wiser".....

Sounds to me like the lady either has very bad eyesight or is an extremely bad judge of age. I've had people ask me when the baby was due and that's no better! I wouldn't worry too much about it. I just hope she's embarassed - she should be!
Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.

she came out from NJ to visit me and we went to church, we are girlfriends not mother and daughter and this lady older than me looked at us and asked if I was her mother! Wow did that make me feel bad and old and I asked JO do I look that old and she said no the woman was older than you, and that was rude. The woman apologized but the damage was done, I know I"m fat but I don't look that old!
