And it all comes crashing down

So today, I see a teaching pal that I haven't seen in more than a year. She says, very effusively -- TWICE -- "You look great!" And I take that to mean "You've lost weight." I can't be the only one with this shorthand -- okay, I know I'm not the only WOMAN who thinks this. Obviously, when I hear this, I'm right chuffed. And then I go shopping for bikinis. A thousand "You look good"s will never erase the image of the (previously unnoticed) cellulite on my right thigh. There, mocking me: "You better think about a swimming dress this year girlfriend."
