So today my parents were telling me that I have to stop buying so many clothes. I told them, I keep buying clothes because I don’t fit into any of my clothes from last summer because I’ve gained weight. And do you know what they said?? They said I should lose weight.
Not in a mean way, just matter-of-fact. Lose weight, then.
I didn’t really respond because it made me feel bad and I didn’t want to get in a fight with them. I’m not going to lose weight because there’s nothing wrong with my body. I’m 5’3” and weigh 130. And the thing is, my metabolism has slowed down since I was a teenager, I eat veggies and go to the Y twice a week… okay, it’s usually once a week. But still. I’m not unhealthy, so why would I lose weight?
They mean well. We love each other, obviously. But man we just do not see things the same way.
