You're so pretty but. . .

Ok, so I know this blog won't be about gastic bypass surgery, just an observation. Why do people think it's absolutely alright to say things like, "you're so pretty if. . ." or "you'll be pretty if. . ."? Why does pretty have a size attached to it? I consider myself very pretty, with or without the weight. People should understand that these statements only can cause the receiver of such comment to feel worse about themselves? I've learned to ignore these statements but others have not. That's like saying someone would be pretty is their skin was lighter/darker or if they'd get a nose job. We need to watch what we say and how it affects others.
Alright, I'm off my soap box. Talk to you later.
