@Lizzy723:  Urghhh she’s so rude!! Ignore her, she’s an idiot. I get those comments too but it seems no one can’t make their mind up- some say I’m starving myself because of the wedding, some people keep telling me the time is ticking if I want to start going to the gym before the wedding. Erm… How about no! I’m fine as I am, thank you. My dress looks perfect as it is. Weddings seem to bring out the worst in people.

@Lizzy723:  I ate like 6 slices of salami and chugged a bunch of almond milk out of the carton at 5am last weekend and then went back to bed.

@Lizzy723:  oooo don’t get me started on that!!! My big sister had been nothing but critical through this whole process – I’ve picked the wrong venue, date, menu, ceremony time, florist… I could go on! Things are much better now I don’t share wedding ideas with her. As for lack of interest, I’m still waiting for my Maid/Matron of Honor to show even the slightest bit of interest in the wedding. But hey! As my Bridesmaid or Best Man keeps telling me- remember the bigger picture- we are marrying our best friend. Whether my sister disapproves of my centrepieces or my Maid/Matron of Honor bothers to get involved in the planning, it’s irrelevant. Well… That’s what I keep repeating to myself. It’s my new mantra…

@Lizzy723:  Holla! Food is probably one of my favourite things now that I’ve regained my appetite, and to hell with people who are going to judge me on what I put into my mouth and when. =P

I think that was a really snarky and unnecessary comment from her. I would be forward with her and tell her that the comment was rude, and you didn’t appreciate it. If you have issues with her on a constant basis, I think honesty is the best policy, and it is worth expressing yourself to her.

I don’t care for my brother in law all the much because he is intrusive, unempathetic, and asks rude questions. I have had to speak with him several times, as my husband has as well. He has improved some.

One method I have used to deflect his questions is ‘Oh, why do you ask.’ Then he can explain, and I just leave it at that, without a response other than, ‘Oh, okay.’ Maybe if something in the future happens like that with her you could do something similar, or ask ‘Oh, is there a reason it matters to you?’

Sorry hun. Some people are difficult to deal with, and avoiding them is an option I also utilize. But I also reccommend being prepared for when you can’t get away from them!

@Lizzy723:  Let’s sit on her skinny ass 🙂 Seriously though, I am in the same boat with wanting to lose weight but it’s a long, slow process. We don’t need captain obvious telling us we aren’t the size of VS models. What a bitch.

The “friend” who went with me to pick my dress up from the shop harped for weeks about me needing to lose 5 lbs. Needless to say, she’s not really a friend anymore.

@Lizzy723:  OMG, I can’t believe she said that to you–she has some nerve!

Is she single? Maybe she’s just jealous–sure sounds like it.
