Tact

Today, my mother offered to give my overweight girlfriend the workout DVDs that she no longer needs. FML
I agree, your life sucks 773
You deserved it 195

Same thing different taste

Okay....? You're of the belief that working out and getting healthy is bad or something? Or that getting something for free is bad? What's the real issue here?

The "issue" here is that the said girlfriend probably didn't ask for anything and that offering the DVD can be seen as an innuendo for "you're fat, move your ass".

None as long as weight loss is the plan.

I mean, OP clearly said his girlfriend -is- overweight, so maybe a tiny bit of innuendo here is acceptable, when it comes with a free gift to actually help do something about it. It's merely acknowledging the truth. If OP's girlfriend was already at a healthy weight....then I could see a major issue here. And I say this as a person who is also quite fat, and I would not take offense if someone offered me free workout DVDs(except for the fact DVD technology is pretty out-dated and I don't even have a DVD player)

we don't don't know if his gfs insecure, why she's overweight, or how good mother worded it. since this is in FML I'm going to assume it didn't go too well for whatever reason.
