I picked other, because Im not fat. I dont believe that overweight equals bad parent. Especially because it's not always someones lifestyle, that causes them to be that way. There ARE other factors

I mean if you are fat because you dont take care of yourself. (i.e you dont eat right, you dont exercise, etc.) 

I'll edit.

I am a bigger woman, always have been... I always eat right and excercise with my kiddo, but with how I treated myself when I was younger, I feel I will never get back to where I should be

I don't know what that means. What does your weight have to do with your motherly abilities?  Sure if you are 500+lbs and have to force your children to care for you because you are too fat to move then you are a bad mother just because you have caused yourself to be obese and now your kids are suffering for it. 

Or if you are in a situation where this could happen then you could be dubbed as not a good mother. 

However if you are just fat and you are not lazy and not making your kids miserable and not forcing McDonald's down your kids' throats every day then why would anyone call you a bad mom? Hell, your kid is probably the reason you are big now.

I'm overweight, but not one of my six kids is, they are all thin, mostly because we are very active. Family walks, bike rides, martial arts, and a fitness class. Our favorite is hiking in the mountains; we have our favorite 6 mile trail. My kids win fitness awards all the time at school, and my daughter won her age division in the recent 5K run. My son took second in his division. My youngest finished in good time(she ran with me) but could not compete cause she was 'too young'. My kids are learning that "fat" people are that way for many reasons, and don't need to be discrimanated against.

21. When I was 5-10 I was molested by my step brother and since that all happened, I stopped taking care of myself.

Oh...

You are so young hunny. Literally... and that shit was ages ago. You are a mother and have given birth. All that nasty shit is behind you and you are not a victim but a surviver! ... 

It sucks to hear you like youve given up. Like this is it for you. If you want it, you can totally make that change. You owe it to yourself to feel your best!

The question is more referring to the fact that by being overweight some might agree that you are setting a bad example on what is "normal" to your kids.

When being overweight, most doctors would agree, causes a lot of diseases.
