Wow, why would someone point out anyone's significant weight gain? I feel ya, happened to me years ago when I got out of college. I put on the 'freshman fifteen' and then some. I had been very active in HS but less so in college, lots more studying and hanging out with friends eating late night meals. So yeah, put on some weight. Every jackass on the planet felt the need to point it out - "Put on some weight, didn't ya?" "I see you've been eating well," "Gotta cut down on the beer, Champ" and so on. Where do people get off? Do they really think we don't know? Do they think we appreciate having it pointed out? Well, I've always been mouthy so I'd answer back with things like "Yeah, I put on a few pounds. And I see your hairline looks further back than it used to. Oh, are you still having financial problems? "
