So this morning I had an odd moment, elbeit a good moment… So I bumped into someone this morning that I see irregularly, don’t know their name, but we greet. Saw them last about 3 maybe 4 weeks ago and after greeting … her response was…”You are loosing weight, is everything OK? I said all good, was just about time I made the effort.” Only afterwards I realised she had been concerned that my weight loss was because I was ill or something! She did express her happiness for me, seemed quite relieved! It made me realise when I thought about it afterwards that there are people out there who have lost drastic weight, or quickly due to illness and I expect she had had experience of this, hence her very genuine concern.
Not quite sure how to process this in my head. It almost seems like a negative, but I also feel sad for her, she must have gone through a rough time with someone close to her. I am glad that I was able to say no – just a good decision made! :-)
