#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.
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.
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 -.-
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). :)
