Christmas ?

Saturday, December 05, 2015

Christmas at my Mom's house. She will daily remind me I need to loose weight. She'll continue this regularly. I am unable to get or afford a hotel room and rental car. I have asked her, each time we visit in person not to discuss my weight. She ignores that claiming she has a right to get me healthy. I have lost 40 pounds but do have another 140 pounds to go. Any ideas how to deal with her for 12 days?

    Tell them you don't wish to discuss your weight. If they continue to disrespect your request then I would cut my visit short. No need to spend 12 days in an unloving situation. That's not Xmas is all about.

    its hard. what they are doing is a manifestation of love. Some have crappier technique than others. I think my advice to you is to hear not what they are saying, but what they are trying to say. Hear I love you and I worry. And that's it. Good luck!

    And when I came home from college, the first thing he said when I came home was "my god, you're getting fat!" it was only this year that I saw a couple pictures from when I was a kid and realized that I was chubby, sure, but not actually fat at all.

    my grandfather was like that. He was anorexic by proxy. Used to complain that the Olympic gymnasts' thighs were too fat. He destroyed my mother, who became morbidly obese. Once he said in all seriousness that he would Love me more if I was thinner,

    Tell her that you are on track and appreciate that she wants you healthy, but , it doesn't help when she brings it up constantly.
