At work today I bumped into a couple of colleagues, as I passed them one of them called out “you’ve lost weight” I smiled and replied “Thank you”.
“oh it’s not a complement, you look ill” he replied.
This made his friend laugh.
I just nodded and carried on my business.
I have lost weight, over 2 stone in fact but this is since May and it has been down to hard work with my running and eating better. I am now a healthy weight.
I don’t blame him, he is actually usually a nice guy but it seems in our nature to be negative, I have been guilty of this in the past but it’s not until it’s done to you that you realise how stupid that attitude can be.
