But you have a pretty face???
Today I am two weeks out WHOO HOO. Time sure does fly!! I am super excited for all the changes so far. I feel like everything is happening sort of fast for me so I am just waiting to be pinched and it stops. I have never lost this much weight so fast. I'll take it though!!
Although I am so excited and can see the changes a little bit. I can't wait till I can see it more. I have been getting a lot of people saying "Oh my god, you can see it so much in your face". While I am grateful for their comments, really I am thinking to myself "Oh that's weird, did my face weigh 30 pounds? What about my arse and my belly?? Can you see it there yet?" Maybe its because I lost a chin. I guess losing one of your multiple chins calls for one to notice! Who knows?
I also have been getting "You have such a pretty face now and a great personality, when you lose all the weight you will be a knock out". Again, thank you but really? I know its not their fault that I am this way and their compliments come from a good place but its still a little annoying. No fat girl wants to hear those words, but you have a pretty face. I have heard that my whole life. Its like having a consulation prize to compensate for the front butt you have hanging in front of you. I'll take the compliments where I can get them though.
I am curious though, what is a compliment you get that still gets under your skin though just a little bit? Or am I the only crazy one HAHA
People are just trying to be nice, but it does get old hearing the same old lines. Good luck...and you have a pretty face no matter what your weight is!!

Just like how us fat people without pretty faces get the "she has such a great personality" compliments. LOL.
I'm right there with you in regards to the pretty face comments. I'd get it a lot prior to surgery. "Oh, you have such a pretty face, if only you'd lost a few pounds", and by "few" they meant "a lot". I'd even have guys say, "it's a shame you're so big, because you're pretty".....really? WTF? Does that make me undateable?
And yes, even now, post surgery by 2months, people notice it mostly in my face, under my chin and my cheeks. They make the comments of "wow, your face really stands out now".....uhm, ok, I hope that is in a good way! I know they mean well, but you are right, it's hard to not take it a little harshly given how sensitive we are from comments in our past.
I'm only now learning to accept compliments, and even still, it's hard for me to do. I use to just think people were saying it to just be nice, but I dunno, maybe they are now saying it because they actually mean it!
Hang in there luv, take the compliments in good stride, don't let them rub you the wrong way.
