I am tired of ignorant people making comments about over weight people. It is not like we want to be big. We want and deserve to be healthy and happy just like skinny people. I am on vacation and my brother in law is making stupid comments. The latest comment was about eating when not hungry. Well some of us are emotional eaters. Just because he is having issues doesn't mean he has to take it out on the most self-conscious person around and he did it in front of my son. My mom is driving and won't leave. She thinks that I am going to be over it in a day when I have to go back to their house. This is not happening because I am tired of his snide comments. He even said to my sister that he thought if my son repeated what he said that it might do some good. I am like what an a**. I have only had one day or so of this whole vacation that was actually alright and that was on the drive down to North Carolina. I have an anxiety disorder and am trying to stay off my anxiety meds because they mess with my memory. So I am on overload to say the least and then he has to come into the mix. I have been on my best behavior and even when I have felt like running the other direction I have stayed and done activities so other people can enjoy what we had planned on doing. If you are reading this, thank you for listening to my rant! No one deserves to be belittled no matter how big or small.

    It's just plain common courtesy and decency NOT to criticize and belittle anyone, for any reason. No wonder you're steamed. I wouldn't like it, either. Who does he think he is? Who is perfect? Does he think HE is???

    It's going to be tough to continue the "vacation." I had one of those one time. I wanted to just go home. Looking back, I truly wish I had. Is there any way you can do that?

    I agree that there is something wrong in your Brother-in-law's life to be making these comments and it has nothing to do with you, you are just who he is targeting for his own insecurities. Don't take it personally and don't let him bring you down - not worth it. Try to stay away from him as much as possible because he sounds like a negative person and you don't need that in your life. Hope things are looking up soon.

    It is evident that your brother-in-law has some kind of issues of his own, or he would keep his mouth shut. Just know in your heart that you are doing what is best for you. As you progress and become successful, you can thumb your nose at him. In the meantime, just hope in your heart that he will eventually realize what his issues are and get help.
    You are on your way - stay at it.
