As a college student working at a grocery store, I see high school classmates and teachers CONSTANTLY. And what do they say? "Wow! You've lost a lot of weight, haven't you!?"

At first it was encouraging and I felt good about myself but then I realized that I must have *looked* heavy when I felt like I looked pretty good back then. I try not to let it get to me. I focus on how I feel now and look at the comments as triumphs.

The WORST was when a few nights ago my new boyfriend of only 2 months asked me after sex: "Have you lost more weight?" I was shocked. I choked out a "Well, yeah, a little... I uh... I'm still losing." He immediately felt weird for asking and assured me that he's always thought I looked amazing. Still: ugh.
