  • OP: I've had random strangers ask me if I was pregnant. (I'm not.) And if I was having twins. (Again, I'm not pregnant...nor do I look pregnant and I have lost 18 pounds. I wear a size 10 for heaven's sake!)

    What I have been getting a lot lately is "Wow, you've lost more weight?" (Actually no...I've hit a plateau and cannot seem to lose anymore.)

    I'm sorry your FIL said this to you...that totally sucks. Family of all people should not make comments about your weight.

  • I would say "Is that your face? looks like we both noticed a problem". Rude people.

  • I would comment back with something like, yeah... is that a new shirt its nice, did you get it at the goodwill? although theres nothing wrong with that, but I have noticed that jealous snobbs ask questions like that.

  • well, if it were coming from a man. I would say something like "i hear you have a small d&ck"
    coming from a woman, I would say "you're just jealous because my t&ts are better than yours!"
