I don’t think your mom means any harm.  Sometimes moms just say things that drive us crazy inside even though it’s a little irrational.  I think you look gorgeous in that dress and have a great bod and I’m sure she feel the same way!

My mom is the same way – sometimes she just says stuff that comes off judgy.  She is very thin (and I am not so much) and a retired dietician, so anything she says about food or weight bugs me a little.

@MsGinkgo:  I think the dress looks great!! Don’t worry about your mom’s comments (hard as that may be) – moms seem to go a little nutso when their daughters get married.  I am also 5’4″ and my weight has yo-yo-ed a lot throughout the years and I wish I had looked as good as you do at 155. Own those curves, girl!

@MsGinkgo:  Tell her what I told my mom – any weight talk is forbidden, and will get her kicked out. My mom behaves admirably, now that she realizes I’m serious. The only hard thing about this is follow-thru, of course, but putting up boundaries in smaller conversations is easier, and might prevent you needing to enforce them in bigger ones (aka, when you’re looking wedding dresses).

Oh, and you look amazing in that dress!
