Lecture, lecture

i got in a little trouble with my mom. i called her and i told her i went outside for a few minutes. she started lecturing me. saying i was not to go out. that i was putting myself in danger by going out. that i could fall and if i fell no one would know i had fallen and i’d freeze to death. i suppose she has a point. when you put it like that, its kinda scary. then she got on to me about my eating and asking me if i was eating enough. i told her i had made myself a sandwich. she said thats not enough. i told her i didnt have any more bread. and the food i do have in the fridge most of it is food thats not really allowed on the slimming world diet. i have to be careful what i choose to eat. she was like what are you trying to prove? you need to eat. a sandwich isnt going to fill you. so i told her i’d have some crackers with chhese. and i just had that when i got off the phone. i hate it when she lectures me. it makes me feel bad about myself. i know she’s only doing it because she cares though. just hard to take is all.

  1. A sandwich fills me up. :/ I understand your mom cares, but sometimes your eating also has to do with how much energy you burn off or need. if I have a lazy day and do nothing, but barely exercise I don’t eat as much because I don’t feel I need too. If I have a busy day, do more of a work out I make sure to eat a bit more, health food yes, but try to fill up more. The balance between intake and out put when it comes to food is a tricky one.

  2. I think she is like my mother, who was not a very good mother, and spent more time bossing me around after I grew older than taking good care of me growing up. I try not to get sucked into it and I know that I don’t have to tell her every detail of my life and what I eat. It can be surprisingly hard to learn that though. Good luck with it.


      1. My mother got in such a habit of condemning me that when I told her once that ig to a great job with a respected lawyer who was married to Teddy Roosevelt’s granddaughter, she made odd noises for a minute until she came up with asking me ciritical questions about my love life, since she couldn’t focus on the job and money thing. People can be pretty odd, sort of overprotective and sometimes in the habit of just picking.


  3. Ugh she sounds soo overprotective. I get her being worried about you, but it pisses me off greatly too when my Mum does things like that, so I know how frustrating it is, but that’s how mums usually are.
