Compliment vs. Insult

Have you ever taken a compliment the wrong way? I was just in the lunch room at work and one of the Account Managers said "Wow... you look like you've lost a lot of weight!"

Granted, I have been working out, taking pilates, and weight lifting.... trying to lose some weight and look "Toigt" but I didn't take that as a compliment.

I wanted to say one of the following:

So, are you saying I was a fat pig?

Is it really that noticeable or are you just trying to be nice?

Man, I must have been a fatty.

Hmmm... I haven't really lost that much weight so I must have a long way to go.

That was what was going on in my very tired brain. I didn't say any of those things, I just thanked her and said that I had been working out. Mind you, the comment was coming from this woman who is my height and in perfect shape. She runs, swims, hikes, etc.

Whatever, maybe it's just my sour mood.

Interesting, since I thought you were thin... and that was several weeks ago! You must be Kate Moss-ish now! ;)
