    Has anyone noticed (if you’re a girl) that men tend to mention your weight loss more than women?

    Some men at my work mention my 15 lb weight loss but seriously NONE of the women at my work has said anything besides this one lady I don’t even work with. My husband tells me multiple times a day. I’m 5’1 and went from 120 lbs, down to 105 lbs in 2 months and still losing. Sounds like a lot but I’m losing in a healthy way. Not starving at all. Not too much exercise either. In the past, I’ve felt the most healthy and comfortable between 103-105lbs.

    Comments I’ve received:

    “Are you trying to be anorexic?”
    “What does your husband think?”
    And my favorite...
    “You had nothing to lose to begin with.”

    I had the opposite experience; nearly everyone who mentioned my weight loss was a woman (I'm female). After a few months they get used to "the new you" and all the comments stop.
