Yes. Not recently to my face.

Most recent was a few months postpartum with my second son - ironically after I'd lost almost all the baby weight and was wearing size 8 slim-cut jeans. NO I wasn't a 2/4 - but seriously, I was 45 and 4 months postpartum and well below "average" for a middle-aged woman. Yes, I wanted to lose some more weight, but mostly because it improves my agility and stamina (key when you're a mom to young kids - at any age!), not because I *needed* to for health reasons. I have pictures from this period - I look healthy.

In keeping with the theme of some others who have responded on this thread, it was of course a significantly overweight guy who said it. It was a community meeting and we were arguing about a traffic issue - he decided to get personal, probably because I was winning the argument. He seemed to get more peeved when it didn't phase me.

I resisted the urge to return fire with a comment about his weight - though I admit I was SEVERELY tempted to point out that he could have lost my entire body weight and still be fat himself. But even if he deserved to be roasted, HIS weight wasn't any more relevant to neighborhood traffic patterns than MINE was! So I just insulted his poor debating skills instead! :)

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

I was five weeks postpartum. I weighed 115. I was 17 pounds above my weight at conception.
Who had the gall? The father. The 290 pound father, who just had a stroke related to his weight. My son said he’d be happy if his dad would get under 350.

Yes, a man who was obese once told me I had a squatter body-his definition of a short, fat girl.🤔

One time when I walked into a room, my nephew said "Hey, hey, hey, it's fattt Becca" (like Fat Albert). He was probably 10 or 11. It hurt.

Yes, by a guy I was dating about 10 years ago. I was 160 pounds at 5'8" and a size 8. He said I was pretty but I'd be beautiful if I wasn't fat. emoticon I kicked him to the curb!!

Yes, by young children. I had to admit it was true. But I am working on that and making good progress!

Absolutely. And aside from me calling myself that constantly, I can still feel the sting of being called that as a pre-teen and teen. Lifelong scars.
