I have always been a thin person naturally. 100-110 lbs or so. In the past 4 years I had slowly gained close to 30 lbs. and felt like crap. (from about age 35-39). I decided enough was enough. About a year ago I started cutting back on how much I ate, cut back on sweets (the hardest) and stopped having late night snacking binges. I succeded in losing 25 lbs, I'm 105 now. According to the BMI calculator my weight is normal. (I'm 5'2"). My problem? People keep commenting on how much I've lost, followed by "are you alright?", "did you mean to loose weight?", "are you eating enough?" It seems everyones having negative reactions and Its making me self conceious. Its not like I'm at a weight I've never been before. What can I say back to these people? I doubt they would ever walk up to someone and say "wow, you've really gotten fat, do you eat ALL the time?" How can I make them realize they are making me uncomfortable when they comment on my weight the way they do? Maybe its just the fact that nobody remembers what I looked like before. I appreciate your advice.
