I hate how they look at me...

so i really have been wondering why everytime i see other young moms like me they always look at me as if i'm an alien... maybe it's because i take care of myself and they look as if they gave up on themselves because they are moms ! it's like they think because i take care of myself i'm a bad mom but i am a GREAT mom i hate it i don't really care what other people think but it's anoying though... i know most of the moms on CM are american so maybe it's not the same as here in europe... but really most young moms here are very fat and don't take care of themselves and i feel that because i'm skinny they look like that... maybe they are jelous... i think having a baby doesn't mean you should stay fat and stop taking care of yourself like they do i mean only the fat young moms look at me like that...
i don't think it's coincidence... because it's since i lost weight i feel that they are starring at me because i'm skinny?... i'm about 108 pounds and 5"3 but i have never realle been very fat the most i ever weight was 127pounds ...

  • You feel that they're staring at you? Or are they really staring? Cause I don't care how pretty the Momma is, I am not going to be interested in anything but the baby. And yes, I stare at the kid. =)

  • I'm going to defend the OP here. I live in America and have been verbally attacked because I am thin (5'7" and 116 pounds). I have also been a lot heavier and have verbally attacked for that as well. I don't think anybody is saying they are better than anyone else but the fact is that women do judge and make snarky comments when it comes to weight, whether underweight or overweight. And yes, Europeans are much thinner (not anorexic) overall than Americans.

  • WOW jealous of you because your skinny ? let me be the first to say I am and always have been on the thicker side of the fence !! And never in a million years have I ever been jealous of a skinny person "NEVER" so to say that they are jealous of you because you are skinny is a bit outrageous ! Maybe they were just admiring that you are a beautiful young mother. Hell I've seen some of the largest girls with some of the finest men. So don't be so quick to say someone is jealous of you because you don't know what they are thinking.
