You know what ticks me off more that hearing some skinny woman say, "I forgot to eat today?" It's, "I need to lose a few pounds, my pants are getting tight!" You look at them in their skinny pants with no hips and ass and grit your teeth. Honestly, I think they say crap like that just to bring attention to themselves.
I work with a gal who says she needs to lose weight once in a while. Five years younger than me she looks great in my eyes. But at least her explanation makes sense, while not making me feel like a whale. She says, "It's not how I look, but how I feel."
