A question for all of you big girls :) (Asked with love of course!)

What is the "right" thing for your skinny friend to say when you start complaining about your weight? I know it's a sensitive issue, but there's got to be something that can be said and is always right.

My fall back response is: "At least you've got boobs! I'm a ranking member of the itty bitty titty committee over here!"

  • That is a nice response, unless they don't have boobs like me. I have a huge ass and no boobs D:
    Really there is nothing to say. Keep you mouth shut.

  • Whoops, sorry.. just re-read the title and realized it is addressed to "big girls"....
    I am average, but could definitely lose a few pounds once baby is nursing less!

  • I've said "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I think you are stunning and I would trade my entire face for a smile as gorgeous as yours any day!" and I've said the "At least you have a great rack, I'd kill to have puppies that awesome" and " You might call me a skinny ass, but I could fare to shed a few pounds..we should start walking..it worked for so and so, maybe we will get lucky"

  • I dunno if I am "big" but I am bigger than I'd like to be...and compared to a skinny winny I am probably slightly thick. Generally, if I start griping my friends just say "Shut up" or "Oh my God" to let me know they think I'm stupid for thinking I look bad. I think I prefer that...cuz then they don't make crap up, but they don't have to call me chubby either.
