Some people don't understand the concept of things not to say. I was out with my dad, sister and partner yesterday afternoon at a restaurant - I'm a strong believer of I will eat what I want/ how I want and being unwell I was treating myself. Dad said I don't know where you put all of that food - then he goes oh wait yes I do I can see it...pretty much telling me that I'm fat, my sister then goes on to tell me that there's more to love. Words cannot even start to comprehend how upset I was by all of this. I've been sick - chugging along at the gym, eating well for 5 out of 7 days a week and they call me fat.
I really just don't have an appetite at all today, I've been drinking lemon honey ginger to get rid of my cold, had a piece of ginger loaf, some eggs and some sushi but every time I think of what was said I just want to burst into tears. Now this is going to sound stupid but I didn't even think I looked heavy, I've lost a pants size since the beginning of the year and yes I have a bit of a stomach but my cycle has bloated me out and I can't avoid that. I can't help that I'm hungry and enjoy food.
I thought that once I was happy in myself no one would really care about how I looked obviously it's not enough for my family to be telling me how fat I am. Pretty crap end to a weekend, especially couple that with the cold I'm fighting, the personal training I'm doing and effort I'm putting in.
I hope that no one else ever has someone else say that to them, when we are already so self conscious of ourselves to have two people in your family comment on how heavy you are is a pretty low point :(
