I would just LAUGH…and I did!

A couple of years ago my childhood friend in the country where I grew up got divorced…the reason ME!! Some friends frantically called me to ask if I had been the reason her husband left her…my reaction WHAAAAA??? LOL…1. I don’t live in that country, 2. I haven’t been in that country for over 10 yrs. 3. I don’t talk to them at all!

I just laughed the rumor away and anybody that asked got told: "you’re joking righ? I don’t even live there!" your response could be: "you’re joking, right? I’m only 20somthing! I have better things to spend my money on" When you laugh at them they will be the ones feeling stupid and they’ll stop.

Good luck!

Yep, jealous.

I have always been on the thin side and within the past 6 months I have been working out more and watching what I eat more. I mean, I have a wedding and honeymoon to get ready for!  I have lost only about 5 pounds but have toned up a lot and look thinner. Our friend’s wife (who is a b**ch and not-so-thin) commented to my Fiance and a group of others at a bar saying "looks like [me] has gotten really skinny. She’s being healthy about it, right?" This chic has never shown concern for anyone other than herself in her whole life and I had a bunch of people come up to me and tell me they know she is just jealous.

Take it in stride and try (as hard as it is) to not let it bug you!

I totally second JennyBryde!

They think you got a tummy tuck because they don’t understand how you look so good!

Screw them! Maybe send them a postcard from your honeymoon in that bikini with you NATURALLY flat tummy!   LOL!

Congratulations on trimming yourself up! As for the immature girls who are talking about your "tummy tuck" – ignore them! They’re just jealous that they don’t look like your fabulous self
