The way our parents precieve food ( and their relationship with it) has a major impact on the way we do. I was wondering how this affected you, if it made you more vulnerable to developing an eating disorder, and if you have tried to recover, how that affected you aswell.
Or, just in general how your parents have affected you eating disorder wise.


Since other's are sharing I suppose I shall as well.
From childhood my family has made me feel fat (my nick name from childhood is fatty; which my sister has called my till even now some times). My mother is 5'2 and 181 lbs. She has always commented on the food I eat; usually negatively. I became diet obsessed at the age of 11. I havent really seen anyone in my family happy and confident with themselves... especially my mother. Ever since I can remember her self esteem has been way low. It's projected onto me.
When I tried to recover from my eating disorder, my parents continued to make negative comments on my weight and food intake. I relapsed because well...not to play the blame game but how can you not relapse when almost every day a family member tells you your fat and/or that you need to buy bigger size clothes (even though they're way too big) so that you can hide your fat.
