    I saw my next door neighbour this morning, and she can be a bit blunt. She asked if i'd lost a bit of weight on my face. I said "Oh I think so, a bit" as I didn't want to go into details, and she replied "Well it makes you look old"!!!!

    Had to laugh - if I didn't i'd cry:doh:

    lol, sorry but I did have to grin when I just read this. I bet you were a bit gobsmacked to say the least. Don't worry about the comment - she's probably jealous!!!

    well done on your weight loss to date. Can you imagine how old she'll think you look when you get to goal :D

    Some people seem to make a living out of being mean! How darn right rude of her!

    However, if I had a choice of looking older, but slim or looking younger, but fat....

    I know which I'd choose!

    Why do people seem to think they can say anything they want...please or offend?
    Where are her manners?
    Most (decent) people, even if they thought such a thing, wouldn't actually say it.

    Sometimes, even a comment like that from family or a close friend can be hurtful but from your neighbour, who obviously isn't that close as she didn't even know you were dieting, is just plain rude!

    WOW, I am so jealous that you have a lovely neighbour, mine just said I looked wonderful, even if I didn't the point being encouragment rather than slaps in face.

    :D Yup thats people for you, everyone i know who has lost weight, looks younger, all i got when i lost mine was "Have you been ill"?? there is no telling what goes through peoples minds, cos they get used to you being a certain shape or size and i think deep down they are just jealous of all your hard work and effort :D

    Im glad that other people think she was rude - I wondered if I was being a bit sensitive. She is old - well probably only about 70 ut you know how some people are older than their years? Does that excuse her?

    No photos - seriously I am NOT a good advert for this. Maybe when I finally get to goal I will be brave and post some up, but I am still a bit raw about how big I was to begin with. Why did no one tell me to do this sooner!

    ...your ticker tells a different story, well done on your fantastic *huuuuuge* loss so far.

    I know what you mean about being shy with pics (I'm the same) and also wish I had done this diet way before now.

    Still, I say better late than never, eh?
