I so understand what your going through. Just recently my dad had a talk with me about my weight, he said I should lose it because of health reasons and because I am young and should "not let myself go" he even offered to work out with me. I am the kind of person who likes to exercise alone, so I have. I was so excited to tell him hey dad I lost 6 pounds, he was like "oh yah", next i was like "hey dad i lost a total of 13 pounds" same response "oh yah?" I wish he would say something nice, I mean HELLO he didnt mind saying the MEAN stuff not to long ago.
