My mom “motivated” me through emotional abuse, particularly about my weight. I was never obese or severely overweight but to prevent that, she would constantly call me names, tell me she that she wanted me “happy and married and fat girls were neither” and show me videos of severely obese people having surgeries to remind me that would happen to me.
I was never any heavier than 140-150 pounds at 5’7.
