Being called fat by a stranger

So recently I have been going to a nail salon. I have gone about three times in total. I decided to bring a friend along to do her refill. And one of the ladies just randomly came up to me and said “hey what’s up? How are you? Listen you really should stop gaining weight, like seriously do not gain weight anymore.”

I think my jaw dropped because I was not prepared for a comment like that so early in the morning.

I have recently started to eat clean and work out. So this comment kinda brought me down. I know I should have tougher skin but I have always struggled with weight and weight comments since I was a kid. And that comment of hers as much as I hate to admit it... it got to me.

Have you guys experienced this before? How’d you deal with it?
