I was leaving work today and the girl walking 30 feet behind me found it necessary to say 'Hey Leah, you're getting fat.' I probably top five biggest bummers I've heard while trying to lose weight and be healthy. Really took it out of me.

Leah as odd as this might sound, I think the best thing for you to do is to own that comment, to say you know what yeah I am fat and so what? Im working on it and even tho the progress is slow at times im still getting somewhere.Once all your excess weight is gone, she'll probably find something new to pick on but people like that are never worth it! being fat is something you can work on, being a bitch, well thats a different story. so go Leah!

Thanks! Some times all it takes is perspective. The comment did help when it came to trying stay away from candy. So, I guess I got something out of it.

That is harsh. My children call me fat all the time just joking, but I know it is true. However I have never had someone come right out and call me fat. Use it as motivation and prove to that chick that you are and will be a different person.

I wish you luck in your goals and remember you can do this.
