I am back home in California this week for Christmas. Yesterday I had lunch with some of my old friends, and this morning I went back to the office where I had worked for 15 years to say hello to some people. A recurring thing I kept hearing (along with "so when did you have the (weight loss) surgery?") was "your face is so pretty."
First, please understand how incredibly uncomfortable that kinda stuff makes me. I generally choose to ignore it but have learned to at least politely mutter "thank you."
But here's what I started thinking about, after having heard that over and over... Why are they saying this now? I agree that my face is less fat, but is it really that different?
Or is it that I'm so so much happier now and that shows on my face, translating to the outside world as "pretty"?
