The words, “You don’t need to be on a diet” are neither encouraging or true. Yes, I do. Just because I’m not obese does not mean I’m happy with something fully in my power to change for the better. I’d appreciate support, not ridicule or offerings of obviously unhealthy foods. You aren’t being funny. You’re being a jerk. Just because you want to do something doesn’t mean it isn’t challenging.
And I will accept, “Well you look great.” Thank you.
Support your friends and family. It’s tough out out there.
