A WOMAN explained that her mum’s damaging comments and behaviour led her to cut all contact with her, and stop her from seeing her grand-daughter.
She explained that her mum subjected her to constant comments as a child, resulting in the woman developing an eating disorder.
In a post uploaded to Reddit, she explained that her mum was now commenting on her 17-month-old daughter’s weight and it was the last straw for her.
She said: “[She] made comments every time I ate, weighed me constantly, literally went to the school to tell them to make sure I never ate candy or treats or pizza, and even praised me when I subsequently developed an eating disorder as a preteen/teen.
“She told me at one point she would disown me if I ever got fat.”
The woman explained that this had had a lasting effect on her mental health.
She said: “I still see therapists and work through the damaged she caused me my whole life.
“I limit my contact with her because even as an adult she convinces me to weigh myself (I have a literally have a fear of scales) and gives me ‘advice’.
“I have a 17 month old daughter. She adores her grandma, and I let them see each other every now and then since they both love to see each other, and I usually have my fiancé drop her off.”
Things went from bad to worse though at a recent family gathering.
The woman said: “Last night was a family gathering.
“I was invited and decided to go since the family I am close to was going and so many people would be there and I could keep my distance from my mom.

“My daughter was sitting on my aunt’s lap while I was there along with other people.
“My mom came over and said something like ‘Wow she’s getting chubby. She should go along with you to a Weight Watchers meeting and you can both learn good eating habits’.
“I was livid. I’m used to her making comments to me, have been for years but now she was attacking MY CHILD.
“I nearly lost it, took my daughter and said we were leaving and if she can say that s*** then she won’t be seeing grandchild ever again.”
