Mom Is Forcing Me To Eat

Hey,

Sorry, it’s me again…

Thank you for replying to my concern. I’m trying my best to bite my tongue. It’s just so hard to see your family hurting themselves and you have to remain silent.

So lately I’ve noticed my mom has been giving me more food than I need. 
I was wearing a fitted shirt recently, and gave her a hug and she looked at me and said, “I can feel your ribs! Are you eating enough?!”

I DO eat enough. I am NOT anorexic.  I did lose a lot of weight, but I’ve worked HARD to lose that. How? Like I said before, my family and I have sort of an idol of food. We go to it for comfort and it’s not right. When God showed me this He helped me to stop over-indulging and eating so much junk. Obviously when you start eating healthier you’re going to lose weight. I’m happy! I’m so glad God helped me.

THE PROBLEM – my mom is now on MY back because she’s insecure of herself being slightly overweight.  So she’s lashing out at me for my weight loss. She’s forcing me to eat and putting extra portions that I DON’T WANT. I don’t want to gain weight! I’ve worked too hard to gain it all back. I was miserable when I was fat.

Maybe I’m being paranoid. But she should trust me. I do eat. She sees me eat. Now I feel forced to go back to my old eating habits because she keeps saying how thin I am and boney etc.  I was happy of my accomplishment, why can’t she?

Perhaps you should consider talking to your mom and letting her know how you feel. If you have tried to talk to her already one on one, then maybe you should pray about having a mediator help you,  like a pastor or Christian counselor. You have to find a way to talk to her. If you don’t want to eat the food, then don’t eat it. Ask her if you could serve yourself the food.

You have to let your mom know how you feel, respectfully of course.

Bless you!
