Speak Up: Holidays, Family Visits, and Comments About Your Weight

If you're like me, you don't get to see your extended family too often, except around holidays. No matter what, I always get comments from relatives about how I look (that's just how my family is). It makes me feel self-conscious, especially when the heavier-set women remark about my thin frame. It's not that I'm super skinny at all, I just eat right and work out, and well, they don't. Does this happen to you? How do you feel about this time of year, when you get together with family members and they comment about your figure? If you have lost weight and a relative notices does it make you happy or uncomfortable?
