I'm not sure this counts as a NSV, but in the last several weeks, I've had a few people who hadn't seen me in a while ask if I had lost weight, and if I were seriously ill. So, on the one hand I guess it's gratifying that the weight loss is apparent, but on the other hand I'm not really aiming to look as if I'm wasting away due to cancer or some other life-threatening disease.
It's a bit strange to deal with these comments because I'm ordinarily a private person and and not the sort to bluntly ask someone else what is going on with her weight and health. Should I try to come up with some witty retort for the next time someone asks me if I am desperately ill? I think they mean well so I don't want to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but I'm getting a little tired of explaining myself.
