aw i know what you mean about familys commenting. although lately i have been seeing some friends i havnt seen in around a year and i know lots of people lose weight for the comments and compliments, but i HATE IT! a friend recently said "wow you look so skinny, wow are you eating?" then another family friend said in front of all my family " are you sick?? your so skinny" !! i could not believe it i was so embarressed. i know it was a compliment (a backhanded one at that) but I just hate hate hate the attention. I told my boyfriend this, and he said "isnt that why you wanted to lose weight?" and i tried to make him understand i wanted to be healthy and more comfortable in my own skin. The comments are so embarressing. Alot of my weight loss has been in my face ( I think my mum may have had a fling with bert newton 21 years ago) and now my face is a lot slimmer, so i can understand that people are a bit taken back, but just the over the top gushing is bloody awful. I would prefer someone say "wow you are looking healthy"
Life's a garden, dig it!!!
