My day started off well, I had a lovely group with a new mum and a pregnant lady came to get a bit of insight to breastfeeding from some of the mums. One of my mums told me how well I looked and she said she could start to see my weight loss. Her comment gave me a massive confidence boost and I felt great.
After a few home visits I made my way to pick Olivia up from the child minder. Walking home I bumped into someone I have not seen for a while. Her first question to me was, "Are you pregnant?". To which I replied, "NO!". She then looked surprised by my answer and said, "Well you look like you are!". In those few words she made me feel an inch high and I wanted the ground to swallow me up. Do people not realise how much they hurt people with stupid comments like this.
My daughter being 6ft 2 is always told how tall she is, with comments like MY GOD YOU'RE TALL!! She hates it and says she would not dream of walking up to someone and stating the obvious like MY GOD YOU'RE OLD, SHORT, FAT etc.
I came home very upset and did not want my tea and suddenly felt very fat, ugly and hating myself. I wish now I had said to her I have been dieting for two months working very hard, and you have just made me feel like crap.
I have just re read all the Mumentum posts and now feel much better so would like to thank all of you for your support.
