Oh, you don't need to lose that much or you look fine the way you are.

I "need" to lose 20 lbs. for ME. I hate hearing how I just don't. Ugghhh...-lol!!

True.
I guess it just gets annoying as everyone knows how they want to look and what weight they are comfortable at.

lol!! I get you. When I originally lost 30 lbs. years ago, people were like "where"? I was like I can show you--Chat Icon Chat Icon

I think clothes mask a lot too.

Same here! I mean I get that when your discussing ones weight its like protocal to say "you dont need to you look great!" to someone but on the recieving end its annoying. Its like "Yes, yes i do need to loose 5-10pounds. When Im doing the jig just to get into my jeans somethign is wrong."

yeah, sometimes I get this too, I kinda take it as a compliment but at the same time don't know how to respond to it. I think they're just trying to be nice. Even though I don't look huge, I know I could still could stand lose a few (or more than a few).

I think people get awkward - they don't know what to say - they don't feel it would be appropriate to say, "Yeah - you TOTALLY need to get rid of those 20 lbs!!!"

I think I would rather someone say that than no way you need to lose that.
