"Fix yourself"
Boys, this is one of the reason we can't have nice things.
So what if she is a little chubbier than her mom?
No need to "fix her"
Unless she is actually in the danger of her weight killing her.
And weight is a delicate matter for some people, so yeah.

13- if she was happy with the way she looked, she never would've posted to FML. However, "fix yourself", is a terrible way to put it, implying that anyone over weight is broken.

It an depend on how overweight a person is, I know several overweight persons without health problems.
There are usually "overweight" and morbidly obese.
And for some people, a "extra" layer of fat can be beneficial

I agree but like i said before if shes not happy fix it? If shes confident in herself and happy it shouldn't matter what anyone says. So either lose weight to be happy or accept herself. "Fix herself"

41 - Well, if you are in Alaska, and fall in the Sea, the extra layer of fat might keep you alive a couple minutes more than a skinny person. That is all for now. Thanks for reading!

49, just because someone is skinny doesn't mean that they're unhealthy. Some people, myself included, cannot keep on weight for their life. It's just like people who can't seem to keep weight off.

Grandmas can be so harsh! My grandma wouldn't stop telling me I need to lose weight, when I was really in the healthy weight range. Maybe something is wrong with their glasses!

But op, I'm sure both you and your mother are beautiful. There is nothing wrong with having a bit more of a figure!

Depending on how old gran is, I kind of assumed that fatter might be a good thing. If OP's mother was skinny and OP is curvier. I suppose it doesn't apply if OPM wasn't a rail...

It's unhealthy for m husband to drop below 220 lb. and do me to go below 145. Some people just aren't built to e skinny. And a lot of bigger people are healthier than their thin counterparts.

My grandma is positive I have an eating disorder because I'm naturally skinny. I have to stuff myself when I visit her to prove that I eat- and even that's not enough!

For some reason, I really don't think she meant it in a mean way. She was just stating the truth as she saw it. If she called you like a fat slob or something mean then it'd be a different story...

Ok a little harsh, but old people just speak their minds, she didn't mean much by it and probably didn't want to hurt your feelings. I could be wrong, you could have a nasty, spiteful hag of a grandma, but if it's not the case, relax, it's not so bad.
