Growing up my mom always had something to say about weight. If it wasn't about mine it was about my dads - who by the way wears a size 32 waist band and is by no means overweight. I think this is one reason why I'm so self conscious, but also because every person in my family is of "normal" size.
Once I had my daughter I immediately started worrying. I don't want her to struggle with her weight like I do. I don't want her to ever feel less than beautiful. I don't want her to go through the pain of feeling less than adequate. My husband and I decided immediately that she wouldn't be given sugar or processed foods. We wanted to raise her to make healthy choices in hopes that that would help with the whole weight thing. I struggle everyday with food and I don't want her to do that.
