She never criticized her or told her she was too heavy, but by praising her for turning down a cookie or asking "isn't it time for your run?" it still seemed to drill in the fact that she wasn't good enough.
That sounds like my aunt, except mine is tall and overweight. Her daughter, my cousin is 20 and has a similar shape and my aunt is obessing over her shape.
