Now I know that this isn't exactly about my anxiety but my mom has it as well. She's in her mid 50's and pretty much doesn't eat as much as she's supposed to. Today she got back from her doctors appointment and had a few pieces of candy corn and said " well this is the first thing I've eaten all day" and I got mad at her. She's always conscious about gaining weight and she was excited that she could fit into her old size 4 pants. Now this isn't anything new as she's been like this for years. She probably doesn't go over 1000 calories a day. She doesn't exercise and thinks that not eating a lot is the best way to avoid gaining weight. I'm a guy and I know women are different and I can't just go up to her and talk to her about her weight, but I think it's ridiculous. The best way to stay healthy and lose weight is to eat more healthy calories and exercise at the same time. She doesn't listen to that. Her mother (my grandma) is the same way with her weight, shes a stick and it's funny because my mom gets mad at her for not gaining weight. Any ideas anyone? Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
