    Ah, the old back handed compliment!

    my fav one is... "your husband must be all over you".... my answer now is "Why because he was repulsed by me before?" and just stand there & wait for them to correct their statment. I dont know why this one comment bugs me.

  11. I need HELP and some pointers... My Doc asked me to speak at his Weight Loss Seminar tonight. You know the Seminar we all attended deciding whether to do this…. Normally I am prepared - but I have had so much going on with multiple sick family members in and out of the hospital these past several weeks that I haven’t had a second to think about tonight. Has anyone spoken at a seminar for WLS? How did you begin, what did you talk about? I am drawling a blank and this is so UNLIKE ME!!!! I have 3 items of clothes and before and after pictures… but what do I say? Why am I freaking out??? This is so not me… thank you for any help, ideas or advice!!!

    Best and worst "compliments"

    The boss over sales can NEVER remember anyones name... EVER (its awful but true) he will call you 5 names before he gets it right... so my name right off the bat everytime he sees me now... "skinny minny" its a good thing i dont need him for a raise. Today a co-worker says "you done losing weight cause your face is too thin" I replied with "funny, no one ever had the guts to tell me that my face was too fat before. when you're thin its like everyone has a right to make comments about your weight....and you dont have that right - but thank you for calling me thin" I guess she thought about it, because later in the day she came up to me to say she was sorry, and that i was right, she has no right to make comments about anyones weight and that she was proud of me for wanting to get healthy. best comment - we were going to a friends wedding, and i came out dressed up - my husband, dad, step mom, & son all said at the same time WOW!! simple comment but had a power punch to my heart!
