My office manager, who is my employee but also a very good friend, is very proud of me and loves that I am losing weight. However, twice during my 65-pound loss she has said something like, "You have done great! But I think that is enough weight to lose." Once at about 30 pounds, and again a few weeks ago, when I was at about 60 total. (I was very clear with her both times that I had nearly 100 pounds to lose, and I was going to lose it, so get used to it!)
My mom does the same thing. She's very thin, and what's really surprising is that when I was a little girl, I remember her telling us that she was "fat" as a kid, that she was the "fattest" kid in her class, etc. She said she weighed 140 lbs, which of course DID sound "fat" to us. That was in the 8th grade, when she had achieved her full height (she grew very fast to 5-6" and then stopped).
I remember looking at the pix of her in the photo albums and I never saw her looking "fat." She looked great, in fact. The whole thing was EXTREMELY confusing to me, and I think it had a lot to do with why, when I weighed 140, I thought *I* was "fat." All through college, I felt fat and was never happy about how I looked. Later, when I gained weight and really WAS fat, I realized how screwed up that was. Now 140 looks GREAT!
My mom DOES have an eating disorder, though. It's mostly under control, but she was anorexic and bulimic. I'm not, but I did internalize some of her freaking out about weight and food, I guess.
Anyway, I assume that when she tells me that I look great at my current weight and shouldn't lose more that she's trying to avoid messing me up as she didn't manage to avoid doing as a child.
So I just ignore it, LOL.
