From the moment I met my best friend in high school, we just clicked.
It was like meeting someone you had known your whole life. We liked the same things, went through the same awkward phases and got the same daggy haircuts.
When we left school we shared many milestones together. Graduations, new jobs, new relationships, you name it, we had been there. We told each other everything and knew each other inside out.
We were inseparable.
But in the last year or so, things have changed completely.
We hardly see each other anymore. We are in little contact and when we do rarely find time to catch up, it’s incredibly different. Conversation is forced and it’s as though both of us can’t wait to leave. After months of assessing, dwelling and wondering, I think I’ve finally pinpointed the change.
My friend’s weight.
During our younger years she was a bit chubby. Nothing bad and nothing that most teens don't go through. During our early 20s her size fluctuated and she was quite open about despising it. Yet in the last year or so, she's gone on a complete health kick. Diet change, going to the gym, the whole lot.
In total, she's lost a lot of weight and she looks amazing. The problem is, she's now a completely different person. She constantly talks about the weight loss and the compliments she receives from people. Her ego has just gone completely through the roof.
