I've been losing weight in dribs and drabs for the past two years. It is finally starting to show! I should be happy about this, right? So why do I feel so self-conscious? Oh, because people assume there must be something wrong with me. Not everyone, mind you. Well, even if everyone IS thinking it, only SOME of them are rude enough to say it to my face. If I WAS sick enough to have lost 20+ lbs, do they really think I'd confide in them?
I don't mind the comments like, "Wow, your arms look great!" I've been working on them forever, but now the protective coating that's been wrapped around them is beginning to melt away, and you can see the muscle definition. Even, "What, are you on a diet or something?" isn't TOO bad. It's not a diet, but the general public still has that mentality. Can't fault them. Just please keep the "What's the matter with you?" for people lying in hospital beds. I'm as fit as a fiddle!
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to the gym.
