My MIL isn't the healthiest gal in town, and has never been a cook. I think she caused a lot of problems with my husband's diet that started when he was a little kid (keeping junk in the house, not cooking anything healthy, very few fruits/veggies). However, she's never been mean to me when it comes to my weight. She and my FIL think I'm the best thing since sliced bread for my husband.

My own mother has. The worst was when I tried on my wedding dress for the first time, and her reaction was, "It would lay so much better if you were XX lbs lighter." I almost burst into tears in the dress shop.

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

Neither my late mother-in-law nor my current mother-in-law have done that. My mother, however, the last time I saw her commented on the fact I have cellulite on my thighs. I understand and know it hurts.

WOW. No never, and I'm so sorry for all of you beautiful ladies.

My MIL is a pain and sticks her nose in too often, and tries to do things she shouldn't, but she's never that insulting.

wow. No. but we're both always trying to loose weight, so I can't imagine her saying anything rude to me, I'd get her back. lol

But really, I can't imagine her saying something like that anyway, she's not always the nicest person in the world, but she's not rude.

My MIL has never said anything to me about my weight or done anything.. but she has told my then 9 year old step daughter that she is to chubby and needs to loose weight.. mean while she was at a perfectly healthy weight for her age and height, but it made me so upset. the poor girl now is always worried about how much she weighs.

unfortanitly they are like that sometimes. Mine is currently recovering from a few months of health issues.. and can hardly take care of herself so realies on us for everything, its not fun expecaily since we don't get along to begin with..

My former MIL told me I should wear skirts more often because then my legs don't look so big.

Insensitive.

Sorry she did that to you.

I WILL NOT take orders from a Cupcake (or a Cookie either!).

My MIL buys extremely large clothes & pants with elastic waist bands & gives them to me in front of other people & says, "I'm not sure if they'll fit...". I've been there. For a while. I'm sorry.

So sorry

That didn't happen to me but my MIL accidentally texted me (meant to text a friend) saying how she couldn't believe how much weight I had gained - I was so angry and upset and instead of pushing me to start helping myself, it pushed me into a worst depression and it wasn't until about 18 months later, I did something. I have moved last it but not sure I will ever forgive her or forget

Nope.

Sorry that happened to you!

Has anyone's MIL pointed to their stomach and said "you have 3 stomachs"? I'm guessing my baby muffin top is one of them.
