One of mine came a few weeks ago...

One of my 4th students told me he was fat with an embarrassed look on his face and I told him "no you are not" (because he wasn't) and then I told him "now, I am fat and the world is full of people of all shapes and sizes and I am so happy for that and totally promote it!" I thought he and some of the other students would giggle or protest this but instead his little face lit up with a smile and he/they didn't say another word about it.

I realized I could finally call myself fat without a negative conotation to it. It was freeing and wonderful. Also, like another poster, I felt I had planted a seed with this boy (and other students that heard the conversation).
