How to stop conversation quickest:
Someone says ," Have you lost weight?"
Yes, a few pounds.
How did you do that? How long did it take?
By eating more vegetables and cutting down on concentrated carb foods, like breads. It took about 3 months to lose (whatever ) number of pounds.
3 months! Forget it. I need to lose quicker than that!
Quick end to the conversation.
People aren't interested if ...your way was to change habits and choose more healthy foods. They want 10 lbs in 2 weeks--or forget it!
What this does to me is --well--the end of that topic abruptly, bothers me. I feel like I am "nothing" and my thoughts are not important.
I am very sensitive to people getting "turned off" to my own thoughts on a subject. Like I don't count.
Yet, of course, they will be the same weight in a couple of months, not "down" anything.
Call me frustrated.
