    This poor woman. No woman should be subjected to this. Or man, for that matter.

    Adele, hats off to you, however you did it ( though may you discover better food to keep it off. MFP is incognito, honey! Come play!)

    To your face or behind your back, there might be a difference. ^^
    Compliments will cease when the new wears off. People get used to seeing you and they go on about their business. There are the backhanded compliments but you can't those too personally.

    You know how to tell the difference between a meaningful compliment and a phony one....you must take the "I" out of it. Compliments can easily go sideways into empty flattery. I love this and I love that... becomes all about the giver instead of the receiver. Listen carefully and you'll know who means it and who doesn't. Take the "I" out of it and put the "You" back into it when you compliment someone.

    'banded', 'she looks like a 50 year old who has been on cigs and alcohol too long', 'easy when you're loaded', 'her face looked better before. Now she is sickly looking and has loads of loose skin'. Charming people commenting there!

    My favourite comment though was how she actually lost 350lbs because of dumping her husband.

    I'm at the beginning of my journey and only down 4-5 lbs. The comment I received yesterday was:

    "Don't lose too much. I can already see that you're thinner. You don't want to get too skinny."

    I'm 5'2" and around 150 lbs (mostly fat). Ideally, I want to get closer to the high end of the healthy BMI stat OR shed some more fat and gain some muscle. Hearing that comment felt so negative! I feel really good about the little bit I have lost, but I still have some fat around the midsection that I'm working on losing.

    I heard that before, and I asked them "why, are you jealous"? Added a laugh to take the sting out.
    You are your only judge.
