"You haven't seen me naked!"

is what I'd really like to say to well-meaning but obtuse folks who insist on saying things like, "You look like a superstar, like one of Charlie's Angels! You don't need to lose another ounce, you look great just like you are now!"

Yeah, and I still weigh over two hundred pounds, you haven't seen me naked, clothes can hide a multitude of sins, so STFU!

Please and thank you.

I think he's trying to be nice, but only succeeding in annoying me! Obviously...;)

People who say those things usually mean well, but don't realize that while they think you look great, you might not share that opinion.

It drives me nuts when Trueman tells me I look good because I don't share that opinion when I see cottage cheese thighs in the mirror.

Yeah, the guy in question admittedly likes the big girls! You get to a point where it's tough to say anything without sounding like you're putting yourself down.
Hey, Trueman loves you...that's a GOOD thing. And don't put YOURSELF down, M*G.

I'm VERY partial to the zaftig version of female beauty. But I ain't no dummy, either. Thanks for the heads-up, Christina. I'll remember this post, should we ever meet in meat-space!

Buck, it's an honor to enlighten you!

Hey, and Buck, should we ever meet, just remember to wear a cowboy hat and boots...then you can say whatever you want to me, and I'll just nod and murmur, "Uh-huh..."
