I recently bumped into an old friend. I smiled at her but she didn't say hi like I would have expected. So, I went over and approached her.
It was only then I realized why she had ignored me.
She instantly said "oh my! Alisha I didn't even recognize you! You are so small!!"
I laughed and didn't think much else of it.
Until yesterday that is.
This time thankfully the person recognized me because I didn't even see him or his wife. He told me he would have never recognized me if he hadn't seen my recent picture on Facebook.
The point of this? I think I should take those as compliments, right? I guess I still think of myself as looking the same to people. I guess I had no idea what effect weight has on how a person looks...
