Woman surprised not to be congratulated on weight gain

A WOMAN who liked all her friends’ weight loss posts on Facebook cannot understand why they have said nothing about her putting on 18 pounds. 

Carolyn Ryan of Hatfield has gained the weight after a rigorous summer programme of crisps, beer and no exercise, but has seen no response to her before-and-after photos.

She said: “I’m supportive when they change shape. Where’s my ‘you go girl’?

“It’s not been easy. I’ve had to deny myself all kind of restraint. Sometimes I didn’t want to gorge that second tub of Ben & Jerry’s. If they were real mates they’d say.

“I thought we were all weight-positive now. I certainly am, I’ve just ordered Domino’s.”

Friend Nikki Hollis said: "I did debate writing 'Your muffin top looks really bulgy, well done' under Carolyn's crop top picture. But it just seemed fake.”
