With every “high” one gets from a successful weight loss, one is bound to get a buzz kill. Amidst all the compliments of “wow, you look fabulous!” and “you are an inspiration…” and all those other glorious things you hear after losing over 50lbs (without medical intervention of any kind), I finally heard one of the most tactless comments, “oh, you lost weight, are you sick?”, and she looked so sullen when she said it. Ok, maybe the fact that it has been 5 hours since my last meal when the comment was made might have contributed to the effect, but still, you don’t come up to people and ask the if “they’re sick”!
Oh well. I’m sure to get those once in a while. No harm done, just a buzz kill.
