    My neighbor ran into me while taking out garbage. She said hello, complained about her busy day ahead of her and then said, "Must be nice to have hours on end to just go work out." We don't even know each other at all, other than we see each other once a week (or every other). I don't have HOURS....I make time and I prioritize. *shrugs*

    Had a girl in a very low cut shirt come up to me while waiting for the bathrooms at a local festival. She grabbed my chest with both hands and started comparing her chest to mine. Then smiled and walked away

    Lol! Creepy!
    Imagine if the genders were reversed!

    I'm allergic to gluten and when I was at college someone told me "don't worry you won't gain weight from gluten!" as if the reason I'm not eating gluten is because I was worried about gaining weight. This was after I had already told her that I was allergic.
    I have Celiac Disease too and I always get weirded out when people associate eating gluten free with weight loss. Like I gained 20 pounds when I went gluten free???

    Same! I originally gained weight when I had to stop eating gluten. Also how many times can you repeat that you're actually allergic to something and just have people laugh like 'right you're totally not doing this in order to lose weight.' It's one of my biggest pet peeves.

    I'm allergic to it damn it! You don't want to see what happens when I eat it - I get really sick. Yet somehow no one believes me....

    It wasn't creepy to me, just weird. though it definitely went to the awkward stage after about 2 minutes.

    Gender reversed = someone going to jail

    Last year I had one of the ladies at work ask me how I got my arms to look like baby arms. :neutral: This was before I started strength training, so they were small. Now they're small but muscular. :smile:

    Out of the blue from random person in the room in extremely intense voice- "You smell like juicy fruit gum."

    Hoping that isn't a bad thing... Like the next sentence would be "My mom smelled like juicy fruit. I hate my mother. Die! "

    Roflmao! :D

    So far just the big boss and his wife making various compliments on my weight loss and telling me about their own attempts. Guess what, if you are my boss, don't talk about my body!

    I was cashiering at work, and an old man customer says to me "did you lose a lot of weight? because you looked like you were ready to take a heart attack before" what a back handed compliment. I just shook my head and smiled...

    Oddest ever- "Your eyes look like they're from a Rembrandt painting". Some 70 year old lady who came into my work. I remember just saying "uuum thanks?"

    Had a co-worker tell me I must have lost more weight because now I had no butt. I've never had a butt, even before I lost 20 pounds, but.....thanks?

    Totally agree. Sure, support endeavors. Yada yada. And if you're my boss, don't talk about my body.

    My mother told me in front of a room full of people that she would give me money if I could get down to a size 12. I was wearing size 12 pants at the time.
    That is gold plated. Did you negotiate her to a price on the spot?

    Within the first week of dying my hair red, I had a teenager (I think, could have been early 20's) come up to me in the grocery store to tell me she liked my hair and that I looked like a real life Ariel from Disney's little mermaid. I said thanks, but in my head I'm still trying to process that.

    When I was in high school, my friend's brother asked her if I was fat, or if I just had big boobs and wore baggy shirts to hide it.

    Jerk.

    Even compliments? Why can't a boss be friendly and compliment someone on an achievement?
