The seeds

Everytime I hear my mother make a comment about someone being slim or anything about food, I think she is telling me that I am fat and a pig because she did do exactly that in so many ways for so many years. My SIL, who has the same sort of problem as I do, decided to never make food or her daughters weight an issue. Instead, she offered a mix of healthy snacks and junk food and kept her daughter active. Neice went thru a chubby phase, but as an adult, because she hasn’t spent years fasting and secretly eating (or whatever destructive food behavior you want to choose), she is able to choose to eat healthy and is very fit. (Hm, is this ignoring bad behavior and rewarding good?)

Would SIL and I have issues if our mothers had kept their mouths shut? Who knows, but we wouldn’t be blaming our moms. :) Not for that, at least.
