Compliments – Cruel or kind?

January 4, 2012

As many of you will know I have been trying to lose weight for the last two months. As the weight I have lost is more noticeable I have started to receive compliments. However I’m the kind of person that always thinks there is some underlying back-handed bitchiness to compliments.

For example…
You look well – You look fat
You’ve lost so much weight – You were sooo fat before
You look amazing – Pleased to see your making more of an effort

I don’t know if I am reading too much into their comments or whether it’s just me not being able to take a compliment???
