    'You used to be sooo scarily fat! Never return to that weight.' Sadly, I regained most of the weight and now feel even more miserable knowing what people must be thinking.

    People sometimes get their feelings hurt when their friends and colleagues don't appear to notice their weight loss. I think that most do, just choose not to comment for this very reason. You say you lost lots and gained it back; and people commented on the loss with cautionary phrases. So it would have been better if they had never commented at all - although their word choices weren't great!

    The most annoying comment was someone who asked if I was planning on losing more weight and I said no (because I'm maintaining now) and then they said "you don't look that thin to me" like what. Seriously annoyed me. Like don't ask and then insult me.

    That stinks! I am sure you look great!

    They say, "You lost a lot of weight. Are you sick."
