Today I saw my sister in law's neighbor. I've met her briefly 2 or 3 times over the years, but I barely know her. She approached me and introduced herself. She said that she didn't recognize me at first because, "You've lost a ton of weight." But, when she said it, her tone was accusing, her brow was furled, and I couldn't even begin to decipher what it was she was trying to communicate non verbally. I was left stunned and trying to figure out what exactly had just happened.

It was really weird. People are weird.

It's hard to know what to think... maybe she was afraid of being all gushy and congratulatory in case the weight loss was the side effect of a terrible illness? But yeah, people are weird.

Congratulations on your awesome weight loss!
