    Hi guys
    Basically I'm size 6 about 8 stone (I'm 18 in a couple months). I used to have a really bad ED but am better now. The other day I tried on a skirt (size 4) I got when I was ill and it was a bit too small. I asked my mum if she could take it out/ buy me some spanx and she just turned it into a lecture about how I need to lose weight because I've got 'chubby'. I didn't think I was as all my other clothes fit but now I'm getting worried. Should I lose a few pounds or just tell her to mind her own business?
    Thanks

    You seem fine, just ignore your mum she's probably just projecting all her insecurities to you.

    I don't think you should, size 6 is tiny (in a good way)!

    Tell your mother to try and fit into a size 4 and see how she likes it!

    I'm in recovery from an ED and putting on weight is probably the most difficult part of the recovery process. Tell your mom this, I promise it will stop her making stupid comments.

    Only just saw your post. Just wanted to say I wish you all the best for your recovery. I know it can be really hard sometimes but Im sure you'll get there.
