I am so irritated right now. I got home from a friend's house a while ago and made something to eat, since they didn't have any food and I hadn't eaten all day. Two Hot Pockets. I wouldn't usually eat two, but like I said, I've had nothing else to eat. My mom's alarm went off for work, so she comes out to the kitchen, sees me making them, and immediately begins badgering me about food; "that's too much for one person, you're eating us out of house and home, when those are gone I'm not buying anymore, etc." When I tell her that's all I've made all day, she says "So what? Just go to bed and you won't have to worry about it." Umm yeah, I will have to worry about it, because I can't sleep when my stomach is gnawing on itself. And then she tells me to eat a yogurt instead. Are you kidding me; I'm supposed to eat 100 calories this entire day? I don't think so. You are NOT going to tell me what I can and can't eat. Just because you buy the food doesn't mean you get to monitor what goes into my mouth. If you want to talk about "eating us out of house and home," talk to my brother. He'll have a normal meal, and then after a half hour, he's back in the kitchen making more food. But of course, I can't point out that he's ACTUALLY EATING ALL OF OUR FOOD without being told to shut up.
Nice parenting, mom. Constantly singling someone out and commenting on their food intake, as little as it ALREADY is, is just one of the many ways people develop eating disorders. I don't say a word when you scarf down a package of Oreos, so keep the stupid to yourself and grow up, seriously.
Also, I'm wearing a pair of jeans that was previously too small, but I guess I shouldn't feel good about that either, right?
