One thing I've always found curious about weight loss is when other people notice the loss and say, "Wow, you're looking great!" I know, I say it too when I notice someone has lost weight.
When a person gains weight, no one ever says, "Wow, you're looking terrible..." Well, not usually. Someone did say that to me once.
It was a lady I worked with around 15 years ago. She didn't say I looked "terrible", but it was strongly implied. I think her actual words were, "Oh, you've gained some weight haven't you?" with a tsk-tsk look on her face. I'm guessing it was a cultural thing (i.e., I don't think she realized that in North America, commenting on someone's weight to their face is generally bad etiquette).
I'm hearing a lot of the "wow-you're-looking-great"s lately. Which feels... GREAT! But I can't help but wonder what people were thinking as I gained the weight...
