  • Depends on the friend... sometimes if it is a good friend they can tell by just your face. If it is a not so good friend, then i would lie. Sorry, i'm a big fat liar but I'm not gonna tell my friend she is fat unless I felt it was appropriate, like if she was having health problems.

  • I'd tell her the truth however, if she gets offensive about it. I'd tell her that she's the one that asked. And if your willing, ask her to work out with you. It could be fun :) This is what me and my best friend do when we feel like it lol

  • I have a friend who got huge. She didn't ask for my two cents but she did say that she felt a little bigger. My reply was, "What in the hell happened?" SHe went from a 18 to a 12 to like a 20. That's what friends are for.

  • It would all depend on how goo of a friend she is and if the answer would offend her or not. If you think she can handle the truth with out hurting her feelings I would tell her in a nice way. Like maybe... yea maybe a lil weight but you still look great!!

  • if she's asking, she's noticed. dont lie. just say, yeah, you are more curvy these days. that's it. don't make it into a big deal or a bad thing. it simply is.

  • If she asked, tell her the truth. Say it nicely though... "Yeah, you've put on a few pounds, but you still look really good!"
