So lately I've been trying to make smarter food choices. Nothing major, just cutting out pop and adding a few more fruits instead of snacking on chips.
Today we finally put new batteries in our bathroom scale and I found out I've lost almost 3 pounds. Great! I felt pretty good about that.
A few hours later my FI was on the phone with a friend of his whose wedding we attended in May. His new wife was asking if I was pregnant. The wife has seen me every few months for the last 2 years, and while I've gained weight, it hasn't been a drastic amount since the last time we visited. I can't see her asking because of the engagement because we've been together so long and it didn't surprise anyone, and we didn't drink at the wedding because we were driving home afterwards. The only reason I can figure for her asking is my weight/ body shape and now I'm feeling pretty deflated. I'm a little overweight and definitely out of shape, but I'm still within normal BMI and I don't gorge on fast food every day.
I haven't been comfortable in my skin in years and I have issues staying motivated when I do try to make changes. I know something needs to change, and maybe this is the kick in the ass I need to get going, but damnit I'm angry and upset that a comment was even made about my weight. The woman in question has recently lost about 35lbs and I admire that she worked hard and made it happen, but I don't think that gives her the right to be judgmental.
Has anyone else dealt with insensitive comments like this? Bonus points if you had a snarky reply to the offender.
