My mom has always had body issues - she gained a little weight after high school, and then worked out like a psycho and got to be very, very thin. She's always been obsessed with exercise and food and calls herself "fat." Drives me nuts because she's 5'6, maybe 125 lbs. She's teeny.
I'm a little meatier. Not fat by any means - 5'4, 135, healthy hips, butt and chest. I have three younger sisters - my youngest is a jock, the second youngest is built more like me except her chest is considerably smaller, and then the older one is thin but healthy. She's a recovering anorexic.
Anyway - my mom and I were talking today about going to look at bridesmaid dresses this afternoon. She made a comment about my sister who's built more like me (hips and butt), and how "oooooh, I remember what it's like to gain weight. But soon she'll figure out that she's getting a little older and can't eat whatever she wants anymore."
It drives me nuts when she calls herself fat... but when she makes comments about my sisters it drives me crazy. Especially since one of them almost died from an eating disorder.
I wish I knew what her problem is.
