DEAR ABBY: “Dana” has been my best friend since 1995. We did so many things together, until she had gastric bypass surgery three years ago.
Mind you, Dana was never fat. She may have been overweight, but she was never morbidly obese.
She never participated in any of the fun sports I did, such as mud/obstacle course runs or fun 5Ks. Her lack of participation was n’t due to her weight her; she just said it “wasn’t for her.”
After Dana lost some weight from her surgery, her mindset changed. She started making repeated snide remarks to me about my weight. I have some joint issues that are genetic. She said, “Maybe your weight doesn’t help.” Eventually, we stopped doing much together.
