Ratchet Relatives That Can Make the Holidays a Hot Mess
The Relative That Tries to Overfeed You Then Comment on Your Weight
There’s nothing worse in my opinion than being in the cheerful holiday spirit, and then walking into a room full of smiling family members whose smiles turn into confusion when they look at you. “Dang girl, what have you been eating!?” It’s nice to see you again too, auntie. While weight gain happens, it’s a trip when you have an aunt, grandmother, cousin–whomever, who wants you to eat everything they cooked for Christmas dinner, but then wants to get on you for how big you have managed to get in their eyes. Really? Weren’t you just trying to stuff a turkey leg and some potato salad in my face? Politely smile and keep an upbeat attitude about it, because the more positive you are about any weight fluctuations, the less people seem to bring it up.
