I'll start us off:
"Your face feels smaller in my hands."
"Maybe soon we can do it standing up."
And my favorite (This one is more cute than clueless, but I had to include it
"There will never be less of you to love; your personality has always been bigger than your ass."
I've gotten the standing-up one too! Almost the exact same comment!

My BF is pretty dang supportive, I'm lucky, but here's some gems:

"I think you could hit 105, don't sell yourself short" (I have no idea why he thinks 105 lbs. is the magic number, but that's too small for me at my height, it puts me underweight on the BMI!)

"I wish that you only lost weight on your belly and legs and not everywhere."

Within the same day: "Are you sure you want to eat that?" (when I was reaching for some chocolate) and then like an hour later "It seems like you can't eat anything, you should lighten up and live a little" (?!?!?!?!)
