Hello everyone. I used to be a member of these boards when I was younger. happily married and just turned 30. I have over 130 pounds to lose. Just started walking and trying to eat right. My mom is driving me nuts...Wants to go shopping, but tries to get me to wear clothes that are too big and unflattering. Any advice?

Welcome to the board. I too have over 100 pounds to loose. I met my first goal of 30 pounds last week! I to am only walking right now. I did recently start riding a bike. I say go ahead and go shopping when she wants you to wear your clothes just tell her you don't

Welcome back! I'm sorry I don't have much advice on your mom. I just let mine voice her opinions and still do things how I want to. My mom has pretty much learned that i am an individual and will do my things my way. However, my mom

My advice is to say "Mom, I love you dearly and I always appreciate your input.
