My worst to date and somehowso hurtful was from my friend and neighbour who is normally veyr kind and sweet; on hearing that I was embarking on this plan of cal counting and exercise, she said ' Oh, I am so glad for you, you have such a pretty face and really could be so dainty but you are stuck inside this large frame' I did not know what to say, I still don't, but it hurt. Is that really all people see in me?
She was suffering from a classic case of 'Foot in Mouth' disease Barb. Just remember this .... in all situations, people who mind don't matter: and people who matter don't mind. :)

A phrase that ticks me off is, when they hear how fast the weight has come off ...
"THAT'S a bit drastic isn't it?"
