People are funny

Sunday, October 18, 2009

I'm working on a longer blog right now and don't want to rush its completion but I did want to share this amusing tidbit while it was on my mind.

I know a woman (thin and fit) who will, after saying hello to me, immediately glance at my midsection (where it's pretty obvious I've lost weight, I have a waist again!!) She has never once said anything to me about my weight loss but I have come to expect this midward glance every time we see each other.

One day soon, I'm going to say, "Don't worry, It's still gone!!"

    You're doing an excellent job handling her so far. But, it sure would be cool to say something to her one time to kind of put her in an embarrassing way. Not very Christian of me I know. The devil would make me do it.

    I've had those stares too - and I always smile and say happily "Yes, I lost 20 (30, now 40) pounds. Thank you for noticing." It throws them every time and calls them out for staring impolitely. :)

    I'm a big fan of "Like what you see?"

  How about for Halloween you tell her it's coming to look for her! Just kidding! LOL

I don't know what's worse, people staring because it's disappearing or people asking me when the baby is due?
People are funny...for sure.

    emoticon Funny story. Some people are so obvious. I'd just look her in the eyes and smile.

    That's funny! Good for you that you have a waist again! I can't wait until I get out of some of these baggy clothes!

Congratulations on your weight loss so far, and thanks for posting your story--it made me laugh. emoticon
