You can't ask me that!
Thursday, April 30, 2015
Today, yet another colleague at work, a man, asked me: Have you lost weight or is something wrong with you?
So I smiled and said yes, my doctor put me on a diet to deal with my catastrophically high blood pressure.
Then he asked me: How much did you lose?
And I laughed and said: You can't ask a woman that question!
At least he had the decency to look slightly sheepish, and then started mumbling something.
At which point I said: Or if you ask, you can't expect a woman to answer!
And then I laughed again and walked out of his office, and put both of us out of his misery.
I'm hoping that I will be able to maintain and in a few months people will stop making comments or asking questions. But part of me is even a little more anxious about maintaining because if I re-gain instead, all these people are going to notice and want to talk about it. Answering questions about weight gain is much worse than dealing with those about weight loss!
