The problem is, I can't exactly say how I really feel. I can't be like, "Thanks. But um, I'm still fat. And I hate the way I look." I just end up smiling and shrugging it off. It's a funny squirming feeling; I want to bask in the praise, because I crave attention, yet I resent that they're saying it because they can't possibly mean it, they're just being nice.
That's my story. But anyway.
How do you respond to comments about your weight when they concern loss, gain, or fluctuation? How do these comments affect you, if at all?
