Growing up I was the underweight kid that everyone wanted to "fatten" up. Now I'm fat and those who wanted me that way are gone but I still here them

From my mother-in-law "oh that's right you don't eat a lot"
From my mother "it's a holiday"

I'm so used to it I just ignore it.

"You don't have to eat a perfect diet to be healthy. You will not suddenly get a nutrient deficiency or gain weight from one snack, one meal, or one day of eating. It's what you eat consistently over time that matter. Progress, not perfection, is what counts." Principle 10 of Intutive Eating -

Darlene, it's not a joke and that couple may be very nice but the husband doesn't sound so very nice. Do you just say NO to the dessert. Maybe the more times you say no the less of a joke he will find it. As diabetes is a serious disease and your seriousness with it will educate those around you.
I hope you are alright.

There is a couple that I have been spending a lot of time with, and every time they invite me for dinner or over for the evening, they have dessert. The husband knows I am diabetic and shouldn't be eating that, but he purposely does it every time. To him it's a big joke.

When I was kid, a neighbor used to...funny thing was, when I look back at pictures of myself at that age, I was not fat at all. He was always fatter than me??? (and it wasn't puppy love, he was in love with my older sister...but it was not reciprocated)

The one time in my life when I was thin, during my 20's, my grandmother used to say I looked 'sickly'.

It really hurt when I was a kid, cause I always had the impression that I WAS fat. As an adult, and knowing my grandmother the way I did, it didn't bother me at all.

Some times you just can't win.

Mm, not sure

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

My mother used to - she was thin and had not problem with emotional eating.

The worst was my father. He hounded me when I was 5'6" tall and 130 pounds, which is really quite reasonable.

Both are gone now but their voices still echo in my brain on occasion. It's hard to shake.

I do...my boyfriend's mother does it to both of us. We both really shake it off though because she needs to practice what she preaches.

I do. Its my mom. I love her, but she has never had a real weight problem or the desire to eat emotionally. She doesn't understand. My sister at times, but she has battled her weight for years and she is just trying to motivate me to get healthier. Sometimes it is not motivating, but upsetting. She tries.
Also I have 2 coworkers who are food pushers, but now that I am finally standing up and saying no, it is better. Not much, but some.

I am fortunate to be surrounded by people who know I am a child of God and know we all have our cross to bear.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I guess I've reached a certain "Age" where I'd tell them to go to hell and walk away! Jut give them "the look" and walk away.

While some have to brace themselves against food pushers this holiday season, I wonder how many of you are like me and have to brace yourselves for the comments(well meaning?-ha!) from in-family anti-fat bigots?
