    If people ask you "are you losing weight on purpose" - it just show they want to be sensitive to your health. You could have a medical condition (i.e. cancer) that caused a dramatic weigh loss.

    I have a different opinion. I lost my beloved husband to cancer. Several years later, I lost weight simply because I was overweight, wanted to be healthy, and wanted to fit in my clothes (the usual reasons people lose weight).

    A neighbor who doesn't see me often asked your question, "Did you lose weight on purpose?" In other words, she wanted to know if I had cancer, too. I asked her if that's what she meant and she said yes.

    Her comment opened up my husband's death and traumatized me for days. That question may seem sensitive to some people, but I find it intrustive, nosy, and jarring.

    It's better to tell someone it's good to see you and leave their appearance alone if you aren't sure why they've changed.

    Sorry for your loss Hollis.🌹I agree with you.
    There's this quote that helps me to let go of people's insensitive comments. Don't attribute malice for ignorance. Some people are thoughtless and low on the interpersonal intelligence/socially inept intending to express care and concern not realizing how they come across to the other person as offensive, hurtful, intrusive, imposing, etc.

    I have had a Dr. ask me that: If it was on purpose. Please don't be mad or upset, as it is a symptom of several diseases, including cancer.
    I just told him...Well yea!
