    Just thought I'd share.

    Washing my hands this morning in the ladies' at work, when a random woman in my office looks me up and down and says.....

    *drumroll*

    "Didn't you used to be fatter?"

    EPIC

    Mummy Helen - I wish I'd felt special in a positive way! It was a bit of a freak show feeling....

    anita1975 - Also wish it was the higher ground I'd taken through choice, was just shocked.

    She didn't offend me, I was just gobsmacked. It is quite hilarious in hindsight :)

    good god some people just need to think before engaging there mouths don't they! Someone once said to me "wow you have lost some weight - how much you lost?" At the time it was 4stone. They then replied with "GODDDDDDDDD HOWWWWW much did you weigh before then????" What gives people the right to ask how much you weigh now and before diets once you have lost weight, I would never dream of asking anyone what they weigh

    totally agree suplizi!

    When I tell people my target, they do the slack jaw, wide eyed "REALLY?!?! how much do you weigh?!" and you think, "er.... sorry.... you didn't just say that did you? No, I thought not"

    Folk's eh - you can't beat them.... more's the pity. ;)

    Well seeing as I don't know this person I'd say they've probably not seen you in ages & were so shocked by your weight loss they just came out with the first thought which came into her head.

    I'd take it as a compliment;)
