This is a hoot. I’m in better health than I have been for years, but in the last few weeks my Hubby and I have been asked repeatedly if I’m sick. You’d think I had lost the weight quickly, but it took me over a year to lose the 50 pounds. And the questions are coming from people who see me every week.
I could understand it if I had just changed to clothes that fit me better, or if I had lost the weight in a hurry. But I redid my wardrobe totally several months ago.
Now, I am still losing a little bit of weight, so my new clothes are beginning to fit loosely. That may be the reason for the questions. But all those months I was wearing my old clothes that were way too big for me? Not a word from a soul.
So, now the question is, have I lost TOO much weight? I don’t think so. I still weigh about 10 pounds more than I did when I was 21, when we got married. And there’s no way I could possibly fit in my wedding dress now.
I think it’s because I look older now that I’m thinner. I’d rather I didn’t look older, but I’ll take looking older over feeling worse any day.
It’s really quite ironic. When I was so sick, but heavier, no one but family asked about my health. Now I’m thinner, and much healthier, and they’re concerned about me. Go figure. LOL!
