the people who see you often are less likely to notice. The gradual change is difficult to see. Folks who haven't seen you for a few months (or longer) will be the ones who comment.
I saw some former clients at the gym one night. I'd not seen them in a while. One of them said, "what did you do with the rest of you???" I'd lost about 20 lbs (dropped 2 clothing sizes).
we had an elderly client in the office who we don't see often. He said I must have lost at least 30 lbs. since he last saw me (it was closer to 40). After the client left, by boss apologized for not noticing that I'd lost so much weight. Would have been really nice if he'd left it at that. No, of course he didn't..."so I guess that means you were actually overweight at one time?"
hard to believe that man lives in a house with 4 females (wife & 3 daughters)! He's a super guy. He just says some really dumb things every so often.
