Why do people think it is their place to make comments on other people's weight? Seriously, people have no filter.
I've been told too many times within the past month, month and a half, things like "are you feeling ok? You've really been losing a lot of weight." or "are you sick? No? Are you sure?" or "how much weight are you going to keep losing?" or "Wow, you've lost a TON of weight, no seriously, a TON!" Um, thanks. Or "come on, eat! Don't you ever eat anymore?"
This stuff mostly comes from people who I dont see very often, so while I can see from their point of view I was big and next time they see me, I'm smaller, but jeesh.
Add to that, I'm only 6ish pounds away from my goal weight and seriously struggling with my eating right now. So, while some random person can make a flip comment thinking I'm sick, I struggle to keep going. Its all very disheartening. If I get to my goal weight, will people think I'm on my deathbed? (Sidenote: both my goal weight and my current weight fall very much within a healthy BMI)
Thanks for listening. Er, reading.
