My mother, likes to point out my very obvious flaws. Ive been a size 9-10 all my life, at my biggest a 12(her dream would for me to be a 1 or a 2, its not gonna happen). For the last 3 months ive been really cutting back on my eating and im at the gym everyday for at least an hour and a half. Even though im working on it, and seeing results she really seems to enjoy making me feel..like a whale. We went shopping today and it was goddd awful, she made my sister- who has recently lost 35 lbs- cry in my car about her weight, as well as the fact that she doesnt have many friends. She seems to have no problem bringing up the fact that her best friends daughter has recently lost 50 lbs- she was like at least 220 lbs- and how easy it was for her to loose it. Now you cant simply bitch back at my mom..cause she cries to my dad who gets really pissed if we're disrespectful to her, and if you try to calmly talk to her she calls you a baby and wont listen to a word you say How the hell do i get it into her little mind that im trying and her rantings, and criticism are so hurtful? Anyone else have bastard mothers?
