I will try again to lose some of the offending blubber over the coming months, even if I am the only one noting the weight loss/gain online, although there are others whom have begun to notice and comment in person.
I have to admit to preferring the direct approach of commenting upon my weight gain when told, “God, you have put some weight on”, to the more embarrassing attempt to pass a subtle comment such as, “Gosh, you are looking well”
This comment is equally as ambiguous when directed at someone who has lost weight. When over-weight they really mean, “You look FAT”, and when you have shed a few pounds the implication is, “You look ILL”.
I will settle for feeling comfortable, and since I do not feel that way at the moment I will lose enough weight to feel happy with myself regardless of how I look.
