    Honestly said

    There are quite a few expressions about "claiming to be honest when saying sth" - to be frank, frankly speaking, honestly, to tell the truth. What about the one in the title? Can I say: Honestly said, I don't trust weather forecasts.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    You can say it, but it's not natural.
