LOL!!!! EVAARK said it PERFECTLY: "The answer is to focus on YOU, and not on them. Perhaps a good answer would be, "Yes, I get to eat a LOT of really tasty things on this food program, and I still lose weight. I'd be happy to give you the web address if you'd like to try it. It's free, and you might need to lose a few pounds yourself.""
My favorite is when Grandma will say "You know...you'd be so pretty if you lost some weight." Well what are you saying I look like now - ugly? Geez! People can be really terrible sometimes. Trust me, I know how you feel exactly...from being fat my whole life. People at school, jobs, stores, etc...I haven't lived a day not self-conscious about my weight, Hun, but you look wonderful and you've done an amazing job. You two apparently aren't friends, right? So look at it this way, her opinion (whether it's the pot calling the kettle black or not) doesn't even come close to mattering. After getting a few years into my 20s...I've come to realize that if I let every little rotten comment someone had for me get under my skin...I'd be wasting energy on someone who wasn't important to me in the first place.
For now, just focus on numero uno - you. :)
