There is a little grocery shop that I visit nearly every day and since I had my op, the guy who works there has mentioned my weight loss a few times, been complimentary and asked how I’ve done it. Now with a lot of people, I’ve been forthcoming about having wls, however this is nice and I like him, but he’s not a friend so I’ve glossed overit saying I’ve reduced my portions and taken more exercise, which is not a lie.

This morning, however, he asked if I could write down exactly what I’m doing as his wife has been diagnosed with diabetes and needs to lose 3 stones. What would you say?

I don’t think he’s being over-nosy, just genuinely interested and hopes I can help his wife. Any ideas welcome

I, personally, would tell him the truth, you haven’t lied, you just have not attached a sandwich board to your back and we are all allowed some privacy. Now though, he has asked and told you about his wife, he must be worried so make his and her day and tell them what you have achieved with some professional help, you now have the chance to help her health.
