|Maintaining||Mom's freaking out! Help!||Sep 19 2007
I think your mom and you need to talk. No matter what your weight or height is, if your changing something in you or around you that makes her react this way, and makes you also react to her reactions, it could be serious and perfectly motivated concern on her part for you and you might not be seeing it or, it might be over reacting on her part and she might not be the one seeing it.
None the less, you both really need to communicate these feelings to each other so both of you can feel comfortable in any changes you are living be it food, job, life decisions or other subjects. If you say you were an emotional eater, then don't let this situation in your life become a reason for concern to the point where it would make you either start binge eating again or under eating to regain a sense of control over your emotions weather they are emotions originating from inside you or brought on from outside sources.
I'm sure you mom means as much to you as you do to her so if you are unable to talk face to face without it becoming an emotional issue, then perhaps writing down on paper your thoughts or getting someone to sit as an intermediate between both of you would help.
If your mom really has no reason for concern, then take it as a big dose of love and try to be compassionate enough to know that that is why she is over reacting and help her through this change in both your lives.
Although it can be a hurdle to get through mom and children issues tell yourself that at least she is not ignoring you to the point where she just doesn't care if you are skinny or fat, there or not.
God bless you and take care.
