Why didn't anyone tell me?!

Do/Did you ever feel like people are lying to you when you ask them if you need to lose weight? I used to say I needed to lose weight and DH and everyone around me would tell me "oh you look fine!" etc etc. I expected them to be honest with me.

But now that I look back at old pictures I couldn't believe how big I was and how I didn't see it than! No one told me!!! And now that I've lost weight they are all like "oh yea you were chubby." "You did gain a lot of weight!" Gee Thanks for telling me than!!!!!!! I mean I know they didn't want to hurt my feelings but if they can't be honest with me and say "Hey I love you but you can stand to lose a couple lbs." than who will? I'm just going to go about my business thinking it's all good!

I taught the people I am around all the time to tell the blatant truth the first time...otherwise it's much worse when it comes out later...

HAHAHAHA Melly...I am so with you! I was just talking to FI about this the other day...when he meet me I was 155 I ballooned up to 192...I asked him what the hell he was thinking not telling me I was ginormous!! I mean I tell him when I see that he's putting on the lbs why can't he give me the same courtesy. It's just not right!
