I’ve noticed this done constantly and I don’t really understand it. Someone shows a before and after pic and they are so proud of how far they have come and all their hard work. Most people congratulate them & are super positive. But a certain group of people will always go “I thought you looked fine before”. Why say that? It’s not helpful. I know most people (not everyone) means well by saying this. But please understand it can also be like a slap in the face. Someone who is working hard to get healthy and improve themselves in any way whether it’s physically, mentally, financially, education wise etc. should be encouraged. Not told “Well you looked fine before.” If someone told you they wanted to go to school to provide a better life for themselves would you tell them they are just fine where they are now too? Since when is progress a bad thing?
