I would like to know what are some of the meanest and most hurtful things someone has said about your weight and what your reaction was. Did you have a comeback that shut them up for good or did you find another way to deal with it. Post comments even if you ran home and binged. SPILL IT!! (no pun intended)

My all time best...

Couple of years ago I was trying out the internet dating scene. I'd gotten serious about health and fitness, was down about 30lbs (finally a size 10!) and I'm sure my profile reflected my new-found obsession with fitness.

Anyways, meet this guy, we hit it off & agree to meet for dinner. Before we order, he tells me - because he feels I'm a nice person, and the next guy I meet won't be so nice - that there's no need to lie, or misrepresent myself, lots of guys are into bigger girls. He can tell people who work out regularly, and I obviously do not. More stuff like that. He offered to help me order my meal so it would be healthy.

I told him he was an ass & left. At the time I thought I did great (didn't go home & binge or anything) but looking back I notice that I lowered my expectations for a while after that - was always afraid I'd run into someone else who was "too good for me"!

a year or so ago

I was walking down to the beach with my young son in his stroller... While still heavy- I had taken to 4 mile round trip walks and considered myself to be well on my way to health. Two young girls tween to teen age started walking about 6 paces behind me and started tittering/laughing. I heard one say something like, "If I ever get to be that big just shoot me." I can't remember exactly what was said as I tried to put the memory out of my mind, it really hurt. I just did not turn around and kept walking.

My six year old son said he wanted to be like his dad who is skinny and not fat like me. It still really hurts.

sorry to hear about that 9:29

My comment is referring to doing a project in class where we had to listen to each other's hearts w/ stethoscopes. My classmate started talking about the other girls in the class and how at least I wasn't as big as some of them and that it could be worse. For no reason! Good thing that guy failed out of school!

I was in The Limited store with my sister who was thinner. She was in the dressing room and needed a different size pants. I went to go get the pants for her, but I could find her size. I called over a sales girl and before I even said anything, she says, "we don't carry your size!" I ignored her comment and asked for my sister's size, got it and walked away.

It didn't hit me at first, but I started to think about it later and then I got pissed. As a salesperson, you should ask questions first, not make ASSumptions. I sometimes wish I could back to that moment and just really embarassed her for making that comment.

I had not seen a girlfriend for over a year. Since that time I had gone from 115 to 140 lbs. She came into town to go to dinner with a guy I was dating, and myself. During dinner he was saying how much he loved me ect, and how beautiful I was. She straight came out with... " Well, if you want to SETTLE, then OK." Then she went on to say she was surprised how much weight I had gained ect... Needless to say, I am no longer her friend. As she drove off the next morning to go home I waved goodbye, and decided right then that I would not SETTLE for a friend like her !!! :)
