    This is what a lady told me who hasnt' seen me in a while. I used to be around 215 220 and now I weigh 190. WTF did I look like before a fucking beached whale? I mean I guess it was a compliment but she made it sound like I was fat before. 5'11'' 215

    Most people have no concept of mass on a body. I would take the compliment for what it is, you lost a lot of weight. Unless that was muscle weight, then it wasn't a compliment but a stab in your gut.

    As someone who was 215 @ 5'11", that IS fat.

    My mom has a habit of telling people who i haven't seen in a while about how much weight i've lost. Their response is always "What? Did he get sick or something? I didn't think he had any to lose!"

    Then they see me and go :eek3:

    If you have no muscle in your lower half, maybe its fat.

    A few months ago I was 210lbs and I am 5"11. Most people told me that I didn't look fat, but I felt fat.

    Now that I am down to 180, I feel great, but I am still fat if you ask me :)

    About 2 yrs ago I was 270lbs and I dropped down to 210 and people I hadn't seen in a long time said they didn't recognize me at first :)

    Now I'm back to 260 :madfawk:

    shit, i'm 6'2" and am down from 215 to an excruciatingly constant 209, but i have put on a shitload of muscle and have slimmed down quite a bit too. 6 lbs doesn't sound like much, but it definitely makes a difference. i'm going to try and get down to 185, but i seriously don't think that's possible. i have really strong legs and am not exactly lanky, so i'll probably settle for mid 190s.

    what's worse is when you've lost 80 lbs and people tell you that you look like you've lost 30 lbs :wtc:

    5'9 235, down from 315, and yeah i'm still fat.
