After losing a lot of weight, a woman is infuriated at the way people are now treating her. She explains how being overweight affected her life, from the constant jokes and comments to the scrutiny over her food choices. She stopped caring in her 20s and started moving her body for enjoyment and to alleviate her depression. She's now vegan and has lost a lot of weight. People are nicer to her, but she's angry about the way they're treating her differently. At a family event, she asked people to stop commenting on her body, but they persisted. She snapped and told them how disgusting it was. Her family is upset with her for making things awkward. Is she the a**hole?

Woman tells family to stop commenting on her weight loss 😡

A woman who recently lost a lot of weight shares how people's treatment of her has changed since she became smaller. She talks about the difficulties of growing up fat and how she reached a point where she didn't care anymore. She also shares how she lost weight unintentionally while enjoying her life and alleviating her depressive episodes. However, she's angry about the treatment she receives now that she's smaller. People are nicer to her and she's treated with basic human decency, which infuriates her. She shares her experience at a recent family event where people persisted in commenting on her weight loss, even though she asked them to stop. She called out her family's fatphobia and how they only care about her looks, not her health. Her family left soon after and she's left wondering if she's the a**hole. Read on for comments and reactions.

Stop commenting on people's bodies, even if you think it's a compliment.
