My Mom Bullies Me Because Of My Size

I have always been a plus sized gal, size 18 for as long as I can remember. I have gotten comfortable with that and often see myself as sexy. But then there's my mother.... since she's been on this ridiculous health kick, every time she sees me, she tells me that I'm fat and should stop eating. Or I'll be making something and she'll comment how unhealthy it is despite it being the only thing I've had that particular day. I feel that because my sister has always been skinny, she compares all my imperfections to my perfect sister and it really gets me down. My mom doesn't seem to realize it but back in the day, when I'd cut myself (yes I'm an ex cutter), it was because of how judgmental she is. It's bad enough that I got bullied for years because of my size. When I come home, I want to feel protected, but no, I feel trapped.

I'm sorry to read this. It kinda reminds me of my girlfriend's mum. I don't know if you can talk to her about it and if that would help. Problem with most mums is that they think they ARE protecting if they keep telling you stuff like that. Maybe she just doesn't notice that this doesn't help you at all.

Even though it'll be hard, you should tell her how you feel.
