Just realised something

I hate it when someone says, in reference to my weight loss, "You're so skinny now". I'm not skinny. I wear a size 12, not some itsy-bitsy size. I'm just barely inside the "normal" BMI for the first time in about 10 years. I know that the people who are saying this mean it as a compliment, but it squicks me. I get flashbacks to the years when I weighed 105 (at 5'7") through no will of my own, and really was skinny! Why can't they just say that I look nice?
