    The Things People Say?

    Please add to if you think of any:-

    It's easy, eat less exercise more.

    It's basic arithmetic use more calories than you eat you're bound to lose weight.

    At least fat people are always happy.

    You must be really greedy to get that big!

    The one i've heard a couple of times, when I was first trying to lose weight was "eat fewer calories, follow a 1800 cal diet and you'll see the difference soon" This was from my practise nurse and one of the GP's. They didn't bother looking at the fact that i'd easily maintained an 11 stone weight for 20 years. I was still gaining 3lb a month on 1800 cals but they look at you like you're bs'ing. I also had one practise nurse tell me "Never saw any fatties come out of Belsen did you" That was extremely offensive in my opinion.

    It is easy to come out with crap like that if you've never been both sides. I had an extremely slim friend who was constantly being told to eat more to put on weight. She was 5ft5 and had trouble keeping her weight above 7 1/2 stone. If she didn't shovel the food in like a "fattie" she could go as low as 6 stone. She ate for England, decent food, junk and did no exercise but just couldn't put any weight on oh and she HATED being called skinny. She used to rant that how come it was not politically correct to call large people fatties but it was fine to call very slim people skinnies.

    I agree some professionals do not like to admit they are wrong. I could not lose weight on 1800 either. I have heard the Belsen comment a few times too - and you are right very offensive.

    I agree being extremely slim must be just as frustrating, I'm sure people thought your slim friend with the good appetite was anorexic.

    Most of my mini friends are really supporting me on my journey, but they keep saying stupid things like if you lose 5 more stone there will be nothing left of you... er yes there will... in fact there will still be 10 1/2 stone left of me, you weigh 8 stone and clearly you still exist.

    Or another fav is "you must be a size 14 by now"... no clearly still a fatty attempting to squeeze into a very tight size 18.

    I did bite off the head of a really annoying skinny woman at work "I don't know how you can keep going to the gym, it all sounds so exhausting"... Not all of us can have the metabolism of a 12 year old, now sod off and eat your chips!!!

    Phew.. I like this, made me feel great, lol!!! x

    Yes they did but i was with her from 8am til 6pm most days and believe me she ate!

    Dr's say there is no such thing as a high metabolic rate but she was the proof as far as i'm concerned

    One time a friend, without prior discussion about weight, handed me a 14 day diet sheet and said ' I thought you might be interested in this'.

    I've had a few naturally slim people say to me "Oooh if you just do abit more walking you can still be able to eat what you like and lose weight. I don't believe in diets!!" Umm doesn't work like that for everyone. About a year ago I bumped into a girl I hadn't seen since I was at 6th form, so hadn't saw her for 6 years "Umm I don't know how to tell you this but you've gained some weight..." Really? I hadn't noticed I've gone up 3 dress sizes

    did you actually say that to her and if so did she appreciate your sarcasm.

    It really is stupid how people mention it...like you wouldnt have noticed! I was with a bloke a couple of years ago when a female friend he hadnt seen in years turned up his words of greeting to her "blimey Jo you've piled on the timber girl" he earned a kicked ankle from me and the deadliest of stares from her
