My sister recently got the compliment, for real, "Wow, look at your collar bones! I don't think I've ever seen them before. They look so lovely!"
What made this exchange even funnier is that just a couple of days before this, my sister had come up to me and asked what these *pointing her collar bones* are called. Before she lost the weight, she never really paid much attention to them, but she was super excited to see that they were more visible now.
My sister didn't mind the compliment, in fact she loved that something she had taken such pride in a few days before was all ready noticed. The person is a dear friend of ours and has been trying to encourage us to try and lead healthier lives for a while now. She's just been rather giddy after seeing us finally stick with it for once. We knew what she meant by saying that, and it was really sweet.
