Have to vent somewhere. Grrrrr. As I may have mentioned somewhere on here 300 years ago I lost 7 stone with a well known diet club about 4 years ago. Took me 18 months. Never been so happy in my life. Was permenantly hungry and frozen but happy. I was 16 1/2 stone and a size 26 and had been for a good 15-20 years. Got down to 9 st 4 and a size 10.
Anywho.....no one told me how to keep it off once I got there. Ive gradually put 4 stone back on over the 4 years like a twit. Back up to 13 1/2 stone.
On Wednesday I went into a jewellers to look for an anniversary present and hubby decided to buy me a lovely bracelet at the same time (result! ha).
The sales lady is giving it all the usual sales crap, is this a gift for you blah blah blah then out of the blue says "so is this for when the little one comes?" I thought Id heard her wrong so i said pardon? "For when the baby comes?" I was so shocked I just said "no Im not". Queue ground open up and swallow me. To make it even better she then says, "Oh, dont worry, if anyone says that to me I just say Im fat". Thanks love.
I have never felt so embarrassed or stupid and downright awful in my life. 2 other people were standing listening. She then made a huge fuss of trying to get the bracelet on me while I was standing there like a giant plum trying not to cry.
This isnt the first time Ive had this but this time it was a shock because I didnt think I was that big and thought I was good at disguising it. Why do people feel when someone is overweight they have the right to comment? You wouldnt go up to a person and say blimey youre skinny/ugly/got a big nose etc. Makes my blood boil. I have been trying my best and have lost 5lbs so far this month. sorry to whinge but my husband cant understand why Im so upset. Still cross 2 days later! lol
