I was fat shamed on my first day at work when someone commented on my lunch, I was in disbelief | The Sun

IT'S always nerve-wracking when you start a new job – fearing you'll do something wrong, and wondering if you'll get on with your new colleagues.

And it took just hours until Abbie discovered one of her co-workers' true feelings about her, when she fat shamed her on her lunch break.

"I started a new job in a new store, like retail wise, and I went to get my meal deal on my lunch break," Abbie recalled in a video on her TikTok page.

"I took it upstairs – this was like my first or second day. And it was only a little staff room so there weren’t many people around.

"One of my new colleagues came up while I was eating, because there was a little office next to it too, and she glanced over and I’d bought myself a salad with like croutons and stuff like that.

"And someone was sharing the sweets on the table."

When Abbie had finished her salad, she took a wine gum off the table.

"And she went, ‘Ohh, but you were doing so well with your healthy eating, and now you’ve gone and ruined it with a sweet'," Abbie remembered

"At the time I wasn’t very outspoken but I couldn’t help just look at her in absolute disbelief and say, ‘But I wasn’t trying to be good, I just wanted a salad’."

But "apparently the message didn't come across".

And as the woman was leaving the room, she pointedly said: "Yeah, we all try and convince ourselves we like salads when we’re trying to lose weight."

"What the f**k?!" Abbie concluded.

People in the comments section were quick to recall their own similar situations, with one writing: "My colleague checks my food in the work fridge and if ever i have fruit or salad she'll come and say 'ooo, on a health kick are we!'"

"I love salads so much and I’m plus-size," another commented.

"why are they associated with healthy eating, they can have more calories than a burger?"
