You’ve Lost Weight!

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?

  1. It’s not a compliment. Well, I mean, it shouldn’t be. I hate when people comment on my weight like that. It makes me very uncomfortable. I’d encourage you to stop saying it.
