My mum is about the same height as I am (5'3''). I don't know her weight and don't think it's any of my business. She's probably in normal weight range or slightly over, but she does sport a lot and is healthy. Isn't that what matters the most?


I've never felt competitive against my mum, probably because I've always been significantly smaller than her. She exercises more than I do nowadays, and that makes me feel lazy sometimes, but I'm trying not to fall back to excessive exercising. Usually I'm just glad she's happy, healthy and enjoys doing sports.

My mom is two inches taller than me and we have completely different body types - she's Apple shaped and I'm banana shaped. So she weighs the same as I do rn, but looks fatter because all her weight is in her stomach. She's double my waist size and diabetic, has lots of health problems.

She was anorexic until her early 20s when she had my little sister - then she ballooned into the overweight category. In my HS days I weighed more than her, then I started losing weight and it triggered her I guess when I become a smaller size than her - so she's been trying to lose weight too. We look exactly alike with facial features and I hate it, because I don't like how big she is - when I look at her I just don't want to look like that. It's fucked up.

She's been trying to sabotage my weightloss by buying sweets and she weighs herself infront of me, and gloats if she loses weight - and it pisses me off. It's a competition to her - not to me, I don't want to compete with her.

I don't really care about my mother's or my father's weights. But they are both a lot taller than me and overweight so I guess I just never had to worry about it, or how to delicately put it. I mean, I don't feel I have a reason to be competitive with them. If anyone in my family it's my sister who is 5'7 and around 135 lbs which is just a bit too close to my own stats, as I'd like to be a lot thinner and smaller than her.

My mother is also Bulimic, so that's an ironic question. She denies being bulimic, but I've heard her purging after eating and I looked through her phone once when I was about 12 while she was in the bathroom puking, and she had a bunch of pro ana stuff. She lost a LOT of weight when she left to move to Colorado from Missouri (Where I was) and when she came back she was extremely thin. The only thing remotely "chubby" were her cheeks from all the purging.

Then she got pregnant 4 years ago with my little brother and got big again. We always could fit in each other's clothes because I was still am big too. Which bothers me because I feel like she should be bigger than me...

But since I moved to Tennessee about a year and a half ago, I haven't seen her except in pictures. And she's DEFINITELY losing a lot of the baby weight now.

I'm not sure how much she weighs, but I know she's 5'3, and I'm 5'6...I still feel like I need to be thinner than her though...


HER mom, hoever (my grandma,) is the same height as me and that's a struggle for all of us...

My mum is thin, she's like 5'6 and idk how much she weighs but she's slim. She used to be very skinny when she had hard time because of divorce issues and she've been eating small amounts of food and weighed maybe like 50 kilos idk. Now she's A BIT heavier tho she seems to be so proud she gained weight which isn't much visible 😂
but yeah, it makes me feel like if my mum is thin, me as a daughter should be thin too.

My mother is overweight. She's lost a lot this year. I grew up watching her try to diet my whole life. I'm sure it has in some way contributed to my eating disorder.

My mum is overweight, she's between a 14-18 (UK) but I forget. She's an apple shape just like me and seeing that we have the same "shape" freaks me the hell out. She was also a size 6 at my age so that freaks me out even more. She always talked about dieting and weight loss as I was growing up and calories etc etc (she doesn't have an ed she used to be a dieter) and that really fucked me up.

My mom has out on a lot of weight in the last two years. I mean, she's still 'skinny' but she's no where near as little as she used to be. She's maybe around 70ish kilos. In saying that, she has had a kidney disease for 25+ years and is on dialysis daily, so I feel so so bad when I strr judging her for gaining weight

my mom is a healthy weight. she barely eats but sometimes she absolutely drowns her food in cheese or dressing which is alarming to say the least. for her age, she looks pretty good i guess but i'd never want to look like her, only because i hold myself to a higher standard. i think her legs are skinnier than mine. if my mom was skinnier than me or even close to it i would probably have major self esteem issues. my best friend looks like shit and her mom is a MILF and i can tell she's very jealous of her mom because of it.

My mom had a to die-for figure until she turned 40 (big boobs, petite). Then she had my younger brother and never really got rid of the weight she gained while being pregnant. I think it's one of the risks of late pregnancy.

She still has a healthy BMI - however, she's been on diets ever since and also has some weird eating patterns (like eating nothing for breakfast and eating a lot at night and in bed, never having real meals but snacking a lot). but that's also because she's a nurse and has to work in shifts which fucks up your eating pattern.


It makes me feel kind of guilty because I had the genetics to have a natural nice body shape but ruined it with my disordered eating. (my father also used to be very lean and isn't really overweight now, only has a little bit of belly fat like a healthy 60 year old probably should have).

Visible and mobile, my body is a thing among things; it's caught in the fabric of the world, and its cohesion is that of a thing. But, because it moves itself and sees, it holds things in a circle around itself.

My mum's BMI is about 19-18. She eats tons though and is really flatchested and you can see her ribs and stuff but I know her eating habits are fine. I wear the same size trousers as her practically. Even though I'm 2 inches shorter and underweight. It's so bloody unfair.  :angry:

My mom is at a healthy weight. We wear the same size (7), and she used to weigh less than me. But she started drinking a LOT and now she's around 140. (More than me) idk how I feel about it because I like my mind body. She has smallish boobs, a big butt, very thin legs, and nice curvy hips, and she's at a nice height of 5'8. I don't think she's ever had an eating disorder but she eats healthy! She told me once she eats around 1000 calories a day...

My mom is so skinny and pretty. And I was always bigger than her, except for when I was at my low weight. Ive always heard from my friends " your mom is so pretty and skinny" and it makes me so jealous. I honestly wish she would gain 20 pounds just so u don't feel like dying when I'm with her. Everyone says now that my mom is thinner than me and I cry so much over it I hate it.
