That's an interesting point. The fact that people tend to classify each other. For a long time, I was the bubbly, happy-go-lucky, fat friend. Of course, I honestly don't think my friends consciously thought of me as "the fat friend", but that's just the persona I gave and was accepted. Not a single person ever said "Hey, you've been putting on a bunch of weight!" So I think as I crept up the scale, people just assumed that was the new normal.
So now that "normal" has changed so quickly, it's kind of a headspin for some of them, particularly the ones who don't know I had surgery. I think, to them, they see it a little bit like they would if I'd lost a limb. Not quite sure what to say or how to act, what is appropriate, what you can comment on, what you can't... to them, it's probably a little foreign.
