You know...those compliments that make you thing "Yeah!!!...I think:confused:"

A kid at school today said "Now that was an interesting lesson.....I mean really, really, interesting" Ummm.

Another kid said yesterday "you don't look so old today".

What compliments have you received that's left you unsure whether to thank or sock 'em one?

My friend, who also struggles with his weight and currently is not winning, said to me the other day 'God, you're still thin aren't you?'!!! Cheeky little monkey! Mind you, sometimes I can't believe it, I still sometimes fully expect to wake up having been visited by the fat fairy in the middle of the night!

A dear friend of mine, when telling her family how proud she was that I had lost weight, announced (in front of me) "she looks much prettier now". She backpedalled reeeeally quickly which made it even worse.

That's so horrendously rude. FWIW I think you're ever so pretty right now (for ages I could only imagine you as the little cartoon exercising lady, so it's nice to see your lovely face. I've actually been meaning to say that ever since you changed your avatar).

That's awfully rude, although I do love your reply, I wish you'd use it.

And for what it's worth, I think you look beautiful in your avatar! :D

Got another abiguous compliment today!!

A group of us at a meeting discussing The Truth About Food prog. We then get onto talking about weight issues (it's mainly women there you see:rolleyes:)

Someone said "I don't know why some people let them get so fat...I just can't understand it". Someone else suggest they asked me "because I will know".

Could take that two ways...a) because I have personal experience, b) cos I'm a know it all :D

Think they meant a) though:eek:

Take it as a complinment!!!:D
