Mumdrum just retweeted this into my timeline.
Now there's a kick up the behind. I really must stop saying I'm fat especially around E, and I must listen to my kids when they tell me I'm not fat, I'm beautiful.

I haven't read it but N keeps saying 'look at my tummy, it's so big' woops. I've stopped saying anything about it around him now.

I read that the other day, it really does make you think about what you say. I was put on diets from the age of 7/8 and I know it has affected the way I think about food and my weight etc.

It's so true isn't it. Slightly off topic, but still on body-confidence, I'm just back from hols, a Thomsons family hotel and most of the mums were in tankinis, there was one lady in a bikini with her stretch marks and loose skin mum tum on show and I wanted to high-five her!

It's the combination of fat horrible and ugly that is the problem rather than saying you are fat.
I am fat that is a fact. I'm on the unhealthy side. I say I am fat. But B got in trouble for describing someone as fat. So I don't know what to say anymore. I don't want my children to think being fat makes you horrible and ugly because I don't. But what am I supposed to say?

I'm not sure why you have to say anything QI. Looking back my mum was probably a bit overweight through my childhood but I don't recall her ever mentioning it to me. Being fat/thin was never spoken about.

Well I wouldn't mention it randomly U keeps askign if I have a baby in my tummy and I tell her no. She then asks why is your tummy so big and I explaint hat it is jsut fat. But yes you are right, I don't need to mention it other than that.
