People notice and comment on my weight loss at church. A lot. People I've never spoken to before come up to me and say things like, "You look so pretty." ('cuz apparently I was an ol' hag before I lost 100+ lbs.). This week an old lady came up to me and said, "You've lost weight!". "I have," I replied. "No, I mean you've lost A LOT of weight!" she responded. I didn't know what to say. Was she fishing to find out just HOW much I'd lost? How about saying something like, "Hi. I'm Mrs. So and So. Nice to meet you." before you start making comments on my appearance?
I don't mind it when people comment on my weight loss. Usually. Until what they say is so...rude? Maybe I'm just too sensitive. In truth I wasn't happy with my appearance before, but I wouldn't say I was ugly. But when did it become okay to make personal comments on people's appearance? If you do it under the guise of a compliment, does that make it okay? Like if I say something like, "Wow! That outfit is SO much nicer than the piece of crap you normally wear." is that a complement or is that just rude?
It is almost as annoying as when my family comments on all the gurgling noises I make when food goes through the band. Almost.
