Fat Compliment

Just to set the record straight, "looks like you lost weight" is not a compliment. The person who uses this "compliment" is actually conveying one of 2 things: (1) You were fat before; or (2) even though you probably didn't loose weight, the person handing you this "compliment" thinks you might like to hear that it looks like you did loose some poundage, fatty.

While I can save my many thoughts of proper small talk and conversation, let's just agree that it is never a good idea to bring up someone's weight. If you feel the urge to acknowledge someones body makeover, try "you look fabulous" or something to that effect.
