BG - over the last year I've lost 15kg which has not been easy and colleague A is vegan and also lost a dress size.
I work in a small office of around 10-15 people (depending on who is remotely working) with a communal kitchen.
Today I saw colleague A at morning tea, at lunch I was at a local restaurant with colleague B where colleague A and her partner took the table next to us and then ran into colleague A in the kitchen mid afternoon. Colleague A then remarked that 'You are always eating'
The non e-hell approved phrase was running through my head 'Well how else did you think I got fat to start with' so said nothing and also the other phrase of 'don't dignify that comment with a response'
I think it might have been a thoughtless comment and not intended with any malice and I may be a bit sensitive about the issue. Is silence and letting it go the best way to deal with it? I don't see the point in creating more issues because people are tired and cranky enough this time of year but I dont want to receive any more of those comments.
