weight worry.

Postby JennaXXX » Tue Sep 08, 2009 9:08 pm

Feel a bit upset.
I am 5'2 and weigh 7 and a half stone. Occassionally I will go up a few pounds or down but overall I stay the same weight.
Today a colleague who I haven't seen in 3 months said *Haven't you lost weight.* It just made me feel pretty down because it is almost like she is implying that I was a little overweight before or that I didn't look good when she last saw me.
I have a few weight issues and as stupid as it sounds, I am now thinking that maybe I should diet a bit. :-?

you definatly do not need to diet. That sounds very, very thin. Maybe if she said "have you lost weight", it was a voice of concern?

yES I AGREE WITH RUFIO
also sometimes our clothes can make us look thinner so if she hasn't seen you for a while it might just be what you were wearing
It is much more likely she thought you were too thin than suggesting you were fat before and also i think if she thought you were fat before but now she thinks you have lost lots of weight i am not sure how you come to the conclusion that means you need to lose anymore
If she has said the weight is coming off nicely maybe I could see why you have come to the conclusion you have
Anyway from your height and weight you sound absolutely fine and anymore weight lose could be dangerous to your health
You are at the lower end of the healthy scale on a BMI calculator. If you were 7st 4 llbs you would go into the underweight catagory
Please don't let that comment bother you

I definitly think she was probably thinking you were getting too thin,if youve never went over 8 stone there is no way anybody could think you were fat!You must be really slim,please dont take this as she thinks you should diet,that would be dangerous.

Are you sure she wasnt doing the whole compliment thing were people say 'wow havent you lost weight?' ... 'me? really?' ... 'oh yes definitely!' ... 'aww thankyou!'
I only suggest this because 9 times out of 10 people want to hear that they have lost weight.
I'm not much taller than you, im only 5'6 and im a similar weight to you too so I know for sure you dont need to lose any weight!
Remember how the runway lights looked one night long ago when you were lost and found your way, and how-you still dont know?

I think the comment was meant as a compliment.
A hug is a great gift, one size fits all.
