uy, ang taba mo ngayon!!

feeling hopeless and depressed...
it's been almost a year since i gave birth to our precious baby and until now i haven't shed off the extra weight i gained. i am seriously feeling depressed about it. to make things worse, people are not so sensitive/accepting about it.
minsan napapaisip ako, bakit ba ang daming nakikialam pag tumaba or pumayat ang isang tao? is this a filipino thing? when we see someone after not seeing them for a long time, more often than not, ang bati natin is, "uy, pumayat ka!", or "uy, ang taba mo ngayon!". isn't that a bit insensitive? what if the person was suffering from an illness which made her lose weight fast? or what if the person as already feeling depressed about being mataba?
i admint, i was one of those people. until i have realized that it is so not worth it. can we not think of anything better to say? if you think a person is fat, or gained weight, chances are, he/she already knows about it. and you need not rub it in…
