During a family dinner, a slender woman faced criticism and reprimands from her mother-in-law for her hearty appetite. Seeking advice, the 27-year-old woman shared her story on Reddit. With a fast metabolism and an active job, she maintains a slim figure despite consuming substantial meals.
During a dinner with her in-laws, hungry after a long day without much food, the woman ordered a meal for two. Her mother-in-law commented on her choice, suggesting she shouldn’t order more than she can eat. Despite finishing her meal and expecting to split the bill, her mother-in-law became angry, claiming the woman was seeking attention and making others uncomfortable.
The mother-in-law demanded that the couple pay the entire bill. The woman refused, reminding her of the more expensive dishes she had ordered. Despite her husband supporting her, his family continued to make subtle hints and send articles about excessive eating.
The Reddit community largely supported the woman, with suggestions ranging from separating checks based on individual orders to avoiding dinners with those who police food choices. The woman’s story sheds light on the challenges individuals may face regarding body shaming and judgment during family gatherings.
