Hugs, MommaBrennan. There are an awful lot of stupid people out there. Thank God our problem is just overweight. We can lose weight, they'll always be stupid. Evil or Very Mad

I had something similar happen to me when I was younger and at my maximum ever weight of 215. I wore loose dresses to cover up, and a teenage girl ran up to me very excited in a store one day wanting to know when my baby was due, chattering away about how wondeful it was and how much she loved babies. Poor kid was so mortified when I told her I wasn't pregnant.

Anyway, stay strong Momma, you can do this!

Well that sucks for you but she was only a cashier and sees obese, pregnant people all day long.I used too when I grocery shopped there. I'd rather be mistaken for pregnant than fat personally. It could have been a lot worse. What if people had mooed at you in the store parking lot? Or called you derogatory names in front of your kids? I feel sorry for the people you inconvenienced in the line behind you because you walked out and left your stuff without paying.

Have your husband or a friend take some 4 way profile photos of you so you can get a realistic view of what your body looks like every week while you are losing weight and stay away from clothes that are unflattering to your body. Good luck and Godspeed with your weightloss, honey!

Store clerks are getting very nosy these days especially if you are buying groceries ! They should just ring your order up and keep the comments to themselves.
