velvette Posted May 20, 2010 Share Posted May 20, 2010 I feel violated, almost. my mom's sister recently flew in, and although she's over 50 she looks 30, fit, etc. my mom is 5'3 and weighs 90ish pounds, sister's a bit shorter and maybe nearing 100 (don't know really, but she's definitely not fat). they all grew up with a "thin is better" mentality. fine. but then they make ME feel awful for being NORMAL. (5'4, 110 pounds) when I had my back to her, stretching casually, she suddenly puts both her hands around my waist. what (I have not seen this women for 2 years, and this is day 2 of seeing her for the first time since)?! I give her the deer-in-headlights look after jumping back a meter or two. she says, "oh, your daughter must have a 24 inch waist" (in a tone that suggested 24 is huge). my mom's like, "yeah, it's like me, now, old and after childbirth. she must be still a little bigger than me though" and then they reminisce about their young adulthood and how it was suuuch a shame to be anything bigger than 20 inches (?!?!??), and how the BIGGEST you were really supposed to be is 21 inches blah blah blah kids these days get too much nutrition blah blah as if I wasn't even there. that was... dinner talk. yeah fun. just wanted to vent. I'd tell bf but he's unavailable right now, so ENA must be my ear. >___ UGH Link to comment
