    This drives me nuts and I have run into it with my own boyfriend even (long story) anyways what works everytime is to say....."What difference does it make how a person losses weight...the important thing is that they got to their goal and they are now healthy" that usually shuts them up. It's so frustrating that these people bitch about obese people all the time then these same people bitch when they actually do something to get the weight off...I hate society ugh

    I think some of us are destined to always be questioned in some negative way, I went back to work after 6weeks + off, and I got many compliments, I had been posting my progress on FB, but hey were saying it looked even more profound in person, and then yesterday I get the "dude you look sick, what is it???" And then a few hours later I get(and this from a seasoned nurse) " ah sweetie why did you do that? Your already looking too skinny so fast and your gonna be sick all the time" fortunately my charge nurse was walking up behind me and put her hand over my mouth( she knows I have no filter) and said "we gotta go" I was about to say "why'd you spend $8000 on your new boobs??? Didn't your husband leave you anyway???"lmao I can't win, but I love my nurse !!!!

    As a former boss, I know how much one negative person can drag down an entire office ... and you can guarantee that someone who takes catty digs at one staff member will be doing it to others, as well. I've had to deal with that in the past and it was something I happily dealt with because you cannot let one person do so much damage. And they rely on you feeling like you shouldn't make a fuss, that you should just put up with it.
    And as someone who has done the major weight loss thing, I know how uncomfortable it can be when someone sticks their nose in where it isn't welcome. There's absolutely no way they'd pass comment on someone else gaining weight, and they'd certainly never ask how much they'd put on, so why the hell do they think it's OK to get so personal with those of us losing weight? My dear old mum taught me some manners, so I'd never ask that question.
    My husband's boss is a prime example of someone who doesn't know where the personal boundaries should be: asked me in front of a bunch of their colleagues I'd never met before how much weight I'd lost and how much loose skin I had. I simply told him that I suspected my weight loss was probably on par with his hair loss (he's a bit sensitive about his rapidly receding hairline) and that my excess skin would rival the excess skin now on his head. He's never asked again. Luckily, I'm the youngest in a big family and don't get easily embarrassed!
