    I don't think anyone said anything particularly unhelpful.. apart from telling me I didn't need to lose any more weight when I was still like 30lbs over weight and it was very clear that I DID.

    I found it odd/disheartening when people wouldn't comment on anything though, haha! Was just my ego playing up. Like "hey fcukface I've lost 50lbs, SAY SOMETHING!!!" I never did say that, I stewed in my own bitterness instead.

    You just have to walk around like a body builder with your arms out to the side. Works every time

    I’m thinking more underwear parachutes

    Now that would be pretty cool and probably very uncomfortable

    "If you eat early enough you can eat what you want and you won't gain weight. This is how we ate when I was growing up, and we weren't fat."

    Stated by my mother-in-law as we sat down to dinner of Tacos, Flautas, and much more food. She questioned why I was measuring my food and writing it down.

    My favorite..... "But you have such a pretty face".

    This. Yes this! It was usually followed by: "All you need to do is lose a little weight in your tummy..."

    “Are they dead?”

    After I’d got someone out of a car crash. Call the bloody ambulance, don’t make stupid f**king comments!

    I truly hate the use of “It is what it is,” typically said with an expression that the speaker thinks conveys depth of thought.

    Among the most idiotic phrases ever. Makes my skin crawl to hear it.

    But it IS, what it is.

    Excellent point. I hadn’t thought of it that way before.
