Today, I went to my parents' house. I recently lost about 30 lbs. My mom hugged me and said, "Aww, you're not my chubby baby girl anymore." She then said she wished I were still fat because she missed it. She's the reason I lost the weight; she used to tease and taunt me. Thanks Mom. FML

That's odd. You are probably beautiful either way, though.

Look at this way, YOU LOST 30lbs! If I loose like 3lbs I break out into like this mini celebratory dance . End up stuffing my face full of food and gain like 6lbs -.-

I used to buy churros at the taco shop when I was younger and my mom would always complain and tell me they'll make me really fat, despite me skating and surfing. When I finally stopped, she got on me about not getting them because they were delicious. Hahaha

Congrats on the weight loss! Don't worry about pleasing others, because no matter what, you can't make everyone happy.

She probably enjoyed making jokes at your expense and she'll miss it. Now you're skinny what's she going to talk about at Christmas, the f*cking weather?

In a way you can be grateful for her cause you've now made yourself healthier! Glass half full

You should be the way you want to be and not try and live up to other people's standards. Congrats on the weight loss !!!

you can't please everyone OP. as long as you are happy with yourself, rock on!

OP should be happy she lost weight and she can gain it all back now if she wants too

You keep using that word... I do not think it means what you think it means.

#59, no, it's right in this case. I don't track their previous uses of the word, so it may be that they got it wrong earlier. Here, the OP expected the mother to approve of her weight loss because she felt her taunting indicated that she didn't approve of her being fat. The result of her weight loss was the opposite of what she expected, so that is ironic.

Aaaaasssssss yooooooooou wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiish!

That's not irony, just the mother being terrible.

It takes a lot of effort and time to lose 30lbs. OP deserves better from her parents and more than just a congrats. As long as OP is happy with herself, that is all that matters.

I can attest to the fact that it takes a lot of time and effort to lose that amount weight. A lot of suffering too in the beginning. I myself recently lost around 40lbs and unlike OP I still have a long way to go before I'm done. My mom thinks she's being supportive but the way she badgers me about my weight is starting to give me a complex. She asks me every couple of days if I've weighed myself today. You're not supposed to weigh yourself every day. If you stress out about your weight you won't lose weight as easily. I try not to weigh myself more than once every two weeks. I've told her that over and over again. She's driving me nuts. Sorry for the rant.

It actually doesn't. Losing 30 pounds is easy enough.

For the record, 78, not everyone's body works the same way as yours. Metabolism has a big role to play. So how about you stop trying to mess with her excitement over a difficult feat?

Okay, 78, if it's so easy, why do you have your before pic on your profile instead of your after pic?

Cause that picture is really me. Losing thirty pounds is easy. If you think otherwise you really will have trouble in life, if that's your definition of hard.

All I was saying to 38 is that isn't as hard and take as much effort, as they were making out. Did I say anything to the OP? No I didn't.

Yeah okay 108 we're all super ******* impressed with how cool you are. Because everyone's body is exactly like yours, right? Get over yourself, kid

I think you missed the point 107. The point being that if its so easy to lose the weight why haven't you?

Op, as long as you're okay with your weight, that's all that matters.

I've stopped weighing myself because I do this if I lose even a hint of weight. "TWO POUNDS? CHEAT DAY!" (Four scones, two cupcakes and a sushi dinner later) "DAMNIT"

Ignore her comments. You should be proud of yourself!

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Not to be unsympathetic, but you shouldn't have lost the weight because of your mom. You should've done it because you felt it was necessary for yourself and you were comfortable with it. It's your body, not hers, and it's up to you to make appropriate decisions for yourself. That aside, hopefully you feel good. Be proud of your new body, and don't let your fickle mother put you down. But promise to do things for yourself, and not for others from now on ( in terms of your health and wellness). :)

As long as you're happy OP, that's all that matters.
