I was at my daughter’s dance class this morning (after a 3 week hiatus) and all the moms started complimenting and questioning me about my weight loss. They kept going on about how much I’ve lost, and how fast I’ve lost it. But it hasn’t been that fast, it’s just that they’ve only just noticed. Partly that’s because I’ve gotten into smaller clothes, which has inspired me to get my hair done, and put on make-up….I look better all around.
The conversation made me very uncomfortable. I’d prefer no one to comment on my weight at all – a simple, “hey! You look great!” is nice, but these ladies went on and on. I think they were trying to be nice, and maybe some of them were hoping for tips, but it sent me straight home to my children’s easter basket.
Why did it make me so anxious and uncomfortable?
