When we’re overweight it doesn’t mean we aren’t good at anything – and we may even be able to graciously accept compliments and praise for those talents or skills not related to what and how much we eat or what we look like.
The first time someone mentioned to me that it looked like I’d lost some weight I was initially speechless. My first reaction was to reassure them that I was still fat by saying something along the lines of “Well, a little”.
When friends tell you how awesome you look, drop the “I still have more to go” crap. You worked hard and you deserve the compliment! ~Jillian Michaels
