This is a lovely message that I got on Facebook from my mom yesterday. Last time I looked in the mirror, I didn’t see a double chin and no one else can see what she’s seeing either. Yes, I am a bit overweight, I won’t even try to deny that but the only places you can see that are my stomach and thighs.
She makes it sound as though losing weight is something that will happen if you just think about it. It’s almost as if she wants me to go and get all the fat chopped off. I tell her that I try to eat healthy and that I’m going to gym (I won’t lie, I have been very bad in that regard recently). I’ve even told her that weight gain is a common side effect of Epilim that I take but she won’t hear any of it.
According to her, I’m just a lazy bum who like to eat a lot hence why I’m so fat. I hear it so often and it gets to a person. At a point, it affected me so much that I became bulimic. I realised that I was being stupid though and after a lot of will power I managed to kick it. She just doesn’t understand how touchy a topic it is with me.
Yes, she’s a mom and wants what’s best for me but I think that she’s just being unfair now. I have been trying but obviously it’s not good enough for her.
