I have always been the big one in my family. I'm taller than my brother and my sister who both have always been trim and athletically built. My mother, always told me I had "big bones".
My dad has been overweight for years while my mother has wild weight swings that follow her binging and food sneaking behaviors.
Anyway, she recently experienced some dental issues that made eating painful, so she didn't do it much. At the same time, they were eating Nutrisystem food. She lost 10 pounds during this time.
She called me today to say that she has a suit that she's going to give me because it's too big for her.
While I sort of appreciate the gesture, I'd really rather not be the recipient of people's large clothes.
In a couple of months, I'm going to give that suit back to her.
