Dear Dish-It: My Mom Wants Me To Diet

Unhappy asks: Recently, my mom has decided that I need to go on a diet. She is always telling me to stop eating so much rubbish and to get more exercise. I'm not overweight, but I've taken a real hit on my self confidence and I can't help comparing myself to my mates who are really skinny. What can I do? Back to Article

my mom said i needed to eat more healthily but i guess it
escalated until i did some pretty bad stuff. Find a food you
love, i love whole carrots. If you still have room to grow
you might get skinnier if you don't put on weight. At least
you only have your mom telling you that you need to diet, i
haven't hit my teens and my whole family (apart from my
dad) seems to take pleasure in calling me a fatso. Going
outside and crying also really helps.

well. when i was living with my grandma & my dad & my mom. my grandma thought that i should eat more "healthier" foods. but i didn't. here is some advice i can give you. just eat an apple a day or something.. something healthy then you can snack on junk. no! i am not saying go to your pantry & get all your junk food i am just saying eat something healthy once a day it won't hurt you. bye

First don't try to compare you to others like that it makes it worse. Second, tell your mom that you do not need a diet all you need is fruits and vegtables in every meal. Like just throw in something healthy in a meal

I know how she feels. My mom put me on a diet that I began one month ago, and I've only lost around 2 kilos. Frustrated It's really hard because you start craving the stuff you usually eat.

Some people can't help being skinny, or anorexic, calling them disgusting will probably just make them feel worse.

no you shouldn't!I bet, the friends that are pressuring you are girls only because they are jealous of your girl,because of her personality and style,and probably, most likely that they wanna be your girlfriend as well! ~~comment me back if you like!:)

I'm not sure whether you have actual depression or not (Ask your doctor if you feel you do, they'll be able to help. ^^), but I'm really sorry you feel depressed. I've been there too, and it really does feel like no one cares.   I know you said it's awkward, but try talking to your dad about it. You said he's the only one who seems to listen, so I'm sure he will listen and try to understand. If you start feeling really depressed every day, try doing things to make you feel happier. I don't know what you like to do, but you should do things like relaxing, reading, talking to people and spending more time outside. Smiling more often can help relieve stress and make you happier as well. c: Try meeting new people too. It seems as though your current friends are bringing you down, so you can try to talk to them if you like or find more friends who'll listen and care about you (however, try to keep your old friends as well. They are your friends after all, and it's hard being lonely). You've got friends on here too. But please don't think about doing anything harmful to yourself. You might not be thinking like that now, but being depressed can lead people to this and it's really not the answer.  Good luck! ^u^
