We do have a bit of a strained relationship but today I rang to wish her happy Mother's Day.
she asked who was cooking our tea so I said probably me as H has a hockey match for the old g1ts. She asked what we were having so I said roast chicken dinner hopefully followed by apple pie. Her response was 'watch your weight'!!! Wtf. There is no wonder I have such issues with my weight, no wonder I hate the way I look. Why couldn't she just say enjoy it like a normal mum would? Why does she know how to make me feel like sh1t every time ? I know lot of people will think this is a silly thing to get upset about but I just can't help it.

sounds very thoughtless, but she probably doesn't realise how upsetting it is for you. Not a silly thing to be upset about, I'd feel the same. Hope you can enjoy the rest of your day with your family xx

Thanks deedee. This is the woman who put me on a diet aged 7 :(

it was a nothing comment, like why did she even feel the need to say it? I know its hard when you have had it all your life but just ignore her. Enjoy your lunch with your lovely family too
My mum did that too at about a similar age, but I know she thought she was doing if to help me - unfortunately I think it's part of the reason for a lot of my food issues but I could never say anything about that to her now.

Deedee, that's exactly how I feel. I actually just want to scream at her that she caused me to be anorexic at 18 and then bulimic but she's my mum and I don't want to upset her :(

I hope you really enjoyed your dinner, sod the silly cow. My Mum says similar things to me, I just ignore her as she is mental!!

Thanks all. It has really bothered me but I know she isn't going to change, Just eaten the pie now, and finished off the cream. Ooooh the calories

Big hugs Mrs C, my mum makes stupid comments like that as well. I hope your dinner was delicious x

That is a terrible thing to say. Hope you enjoyed your dinner. I too had toast chicken dinner, but followed by chocolate came with cream and then tonight I tucked into thorntons chocolates!

I came off the phone to mine feeling c**p too. I get so annoyed that I let her get to me. But she does.
