Is it a compliment to tell someone they look like they’ve lost weight? Such a loaded question for me. I try so hard to remind myself constantly that weight doesn’t matter, but old habits die hard. “You lost weight!”, is still a knee jerk commit, and I always assume it’s a huge compliment. I’ve even said it when it didn’t look like the person had lost weight – I just thought it was a great thing to say!
Of course, who even knows why someone lost the weight. Are they ill? Are they going through an unhappy time?
And the ultimate question – why have I always thought that weight loss is such a great thing anyway?
