You're fat, you obviously don't know how to eat right?

This week I had a work colleage, bring up my recent weight loss. During the classes we had a break before the last class (this is 6-7pm) and she gave me a mini kit-kat. I can streach 66 cals for one of those as a treat. I was like, oh I brought a banana oh well.
And she's like "Are you sure it's ok to be eating a banana, between meals?"
I was like, uh yes I think a banana is ok.
Then she starts going on about how to lose weight is to not eat carbs for dinner and no snacks *sigh*
I said carbs aren't bad as part of a balanced diet, which I am eating....
Then I try to change the subject, and she asks if I got a bf and I have since I last saw her so she's asking about him, and I've said I'll marry him in 3 years once he's graduated nursing school.
So she obviously thinks that's why I'm loosing weight and says "Do you think you can loose the weight in 3 years?"
Oh ho wow. I was like, uh I've lost 12kilos already hopefully it won't take that long...but I'm planning on over a year. And she says "Don't you think that's too quick? They say the slower you loose it the longer it stays off..."
I inform her that 1kg a week which I have lost is fine. I've had enough talking to her. Once again a case of unhelpful and just plain wrong advice.
But after work I had finished and it was late, and I looked at my (small) banana, and I felt guilt for eating this 'snack'.
Then I was like f- her and her advice, and ate my banana. No one should make me feel guilty for what I eat, be it a banana or a huge bar of chocolate.
