So true. As a younger woman, I went through a phase where I was losing weight (and really didn’t want to) and was flabbergasted at all the uninvited compliments I received. I never thought my body looked bad. I still don’t. But the number of people who thought I looked better simply because I lost weight was overwhelming. And discomfiting.
friend: omg you lost so much weight, how did you do it?
me: i stopped eating.
friend: *awkward silence*
never comment someone’s weight unless you’re their doctor.
because you never know the whole story.
