At work, I had a meeting late yesterday with a perfect lovely woman. We were discussing business, and all of a sudden she busted out, “Did you have gastric bypass?” I think my chin must have hit the table in front of me; I was definitely rendered speechless for a few seconds.
When I regained my thought process, I told her, “No, I didn’t – but it’s funny you mention it, I have lost 180 pounds. How did you know?”
To which she replied, “Oh, I can tell through your neck and arms. Your neck is thin. (I have no idea still what this means.)” She herself had gastric bypass in 2001.
The really strange part is, I almost feel offended? It’s a little bit how I used to feel when someone asked how far along I was. It is definitely the first time someone that I didn’t know in my former life could spot the fact that I’ve had massive weight loss.
