I wonder if my mom succeeded at not impressing her issues on to me as a young girl. Sometimes I don’t always think so. I think my mom was anorexic at one point when she was a teenager. She is really thin in the old pictures of herself. Now that I’m away at college most of the time now I don’t notice this as much, but when I was younger my mom would always ask if she looked good in something.. do I think she needs to lose weight? working out all the time now she makes protein shakes and works out. She’s had three kids I think people are going to forgive a few extra pounds. My mom is beautiful I just think she worries too much about what people think.
