    "You eat a salad every day??" I did not have to answer, but I said I did with whatever vegetables, fruits etc. I want and that it's not like eating a Big Mac every day. No other comments about how I look. I don't work for this person anymore after that and "Can you have this?" over and over. I often repeated that I can have whatever I want, but not everything is beneficial to me. I had to ask her to stop talking about my diet as that is why I already have an accountability person. There were many other taxing things there. I quit.

    "I didn't even recognize you" I heard after about a year of not seeing that person. That comment and the one below came from the same person.

    I saw nothing healthy for breakfast that I could get with the coupon. I checked online ahead and decided on lunch at 10:30 am. The other person got breakfast (not a diner) and told me they felt uncomfortable with my choice. Haven't eaten out since with that one.

    The Dr. has said "You lost weight! Just a little bit more". Sometimes she has noticed, sometimes has said nothing, so that was good to hear recently.

    I live in the American south so i get some pretty funny ones: "s*** boy you gon dry up and blow away" "you're wastin away on us brother" and my favorite: "where's the other half of ya!?"

    Never hear those in the North. Oh my gosh.

    A friend who's curious about how I lost weight: "so you completely eliminated sugar from your diet, or just reduced sugar?"
    Euhm, neither actually, I'm not even watching my sugar intake actually :smirk:

    My MIL sucks. She’s a nasty piece of work and has absolutely no clue that what she just said to me was utterly hurtful and offensive. The stupid *kitten* had the nerve to say “You know, you should start doing face exercises so that you don’t look so gaunt”. The *kitten* nerve!!!! This coming from the morbidly obese women who hasn’t been able to conquer her food addiction has the bloody gall to say anything about anyone else!

    I’m pissed.

    My gosh. Ugh. I would be mad, too!!! I used to have a nasty one, too. Always trying to give me bigger sizes in clothing than I was. When I asked if I could exchange something or something like that, "Oh it's good you can wear THAT SIZE (the size I said I wanted)".

    Your MIL sounds like a mean person. Don’t let her get to you. You have done a wonderful thing and remember that👍
