THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR OPINIONS. THEY WERE VERY INTERESTING.
POLL IS NOW CLOSED.
I'm overweight and I do my best to set a healthy example, however hypothyroidism makes it extremely difficult to get to a healthy weight.
Yeah, no. It doesn't mean you're a bad mom. It means you have other shit going on that is pulling your focus from taking care of yourself. I'm overweight, and I am a fucking awesome mom. My son loves the shit out of me because I take the time to check in with him daily and see how he's doing, make sure everything is going good for him and spend quality time with him. I do the things that matter to him, which are mostly me playing video games with him right now. It's cold as fuck outside and I would rather play with my son than exercise in the cold, and frankly after work I am freaking exhausted since I have just had a 10 hour day and there is nothing I want LESS than exercise.
I'm not lazy. I work my ass off. I make 98% of what my husband does (and I'm only 2% behind because he is 3 years older than me and has had that much longer in the workforce to make his money). I work 10 hour days outside the home and still feed my family nutritiously and make sure everyone is happy and healthy. We take vitamins and get as many servings of veggies as we can. And yet, I'm overweight because I ate too many dang donuts at work. While making half our household income. Excuse me for stress eating once in awhile. My son sees me work hard, he knows exactly what I do at work and why it's important, and what benefits it brings to our household. I am teaching him the value of hard work and dedication, and that some things are not easy but they are still worth doing.
So excuse me if I disagree.
I don't see how weight would make you a bad parent.
I grew up with a family of bigger people, and was big myself for a long time, when I reached high school I realized it was unhealthy the way I was taught and wanted to change my ways I wanted to find my own self, and I learned alot from those habits, but my bigger grandmother, who rasied me, was a great parent, and her weight was never a factor.
You are who you are, no matter what.
If you're ugly, you're a bad parent. How dare you make a child with how ugly you are! The world doesn't need that.Maybe I should be under a bridge somewhere. lol!!
