A recent post about sudden weight loss made me think about “fat shaming” in our society. I personally have lost >100 pounds and have noticed that people (esp men) treat me much differently, like opening doors for me, helping (like if I were to drop something, someone would pick it up), etc. Curious to hear of men or women have experienced something similar? Or the opposite when gaining a significant amount of weight?
