my baby is under 4 months & i am sick & tired of people telling me ive sprung back into shape so must be naturally skinny!!!! no, far from it..... i havetoast for breakfast, an apple for lunch & a small bowl of pasta with peas for dinner. i also try & excercise where i can. ive worked bloody hard on losing my baby weight & want to scream at people im bloody well hungry & want a nice juicy cheesy pizza!!!!!!

So eat some pizza? A healthy diet has all things in moderation, your diet sounds awfully restrictive and won't be giving you adequate nutrition.

Sounds like you should have the pizza.

BrianButterfield Wed 15-May-13 19:05:27

You don't eat enough, that's why they're surprised. Eat the pizza - you need the energy with a new baby more than you need to be skinny (and I lost my baby weight quite quickly but just through walking loads with the pushchair). Don't starve yourself, you will look back and which you'd enjoyed the early days, not spent them hungry.

Er.... YABU. On many levels.

Pobblewhohasnotoes Wed 15-May-13 19:05:52

Eat it then. Starving yourself is not a good diet.

SJisontheway Wed 15-May-13 19:07:11

I'm not suprised you're hungry. Their assumption wasn't that unreasonable, as they wrongly assumed you weren't starving yourself.

Would you prefer a fanfare and a medal?

Who cares what you do in your private life

Just take the compliments for what they are - compliments

TiredyCustards Wed 15-May-13 19:08:33

Yabu. Eat more, it's not a competition.

noblegiraffe Wed 15-May-13 19:08:46

Crikey, you need to eat more than that. You must be feeling crap, what with starving yourself on top of having a small baby to look after!

Buzzardbird Wed 15-May-13 19:08:50

That diet sounds dangerous.

TidyDancer Wed 15-May-13 19:09:38

You are being ridiculous and I suspect attention seeking.

Clearly not eating a healthy diet either.

usualsuspect Wed 15-May-13 19:10:04

You will make yourself ill.

Eat a pizza

LadyIsabellaWrotham Wed 15-May-13 19:11:15

They are paying you the compliment of assuming you are acting sensibly. They are not to know that you're making these bizarre choices.

usualsuspect Wed 15-May-13 19:11:15

Maybe if you ate more,you wouldn't be so ratty and want to scream at people.

littlepeas Wed 15-May-13 19:11:55

Bloody hell - eat if you are hungry, for God's sake! YABU.

wordfactory Wed 15-May-13 19:12:58

OP. Grow. Up.

kikid Wed 15-May-13 19:13:58

you need a variety of foods to have a healthy diet, make sure you take a vitamin. Also not eating what you want or fancy must be making you feel miserable, I know I couldn't be hungry, that would make me sad..
you also need extra calories for your milk production.
go easy on yourself, you need to be happy! ;)

kikid Wed 15-May-13 19:14:39

smile

harryhausen Wed 15-May-13 19:16:03

So would you prefer people to congratulate you on your food 'martyrdom'?

I don't get why you're angry? Is it because people haven't told you how amazing you are for starving yourself? Of course they think you're naturally skinny, because being constantly hungry is just not healthy.

HoneyDragon Wed 15-May-13 19:18:12

No wonder you're grumpy.

Have a medal. You can smile now.

TondelayoSchwarzkopf Wed 15-May-13 19:18:23

Here have a biscuit

Samnella Wed 15-May-13 19:18:25

Well done for losing the weight. I am 7lbs down with 21lbs to go so know how hard it is. However, it doesn't sound like you are eating enough. Next time they say anything why don't you just say "yes I am really please and I have worked really hard to get here. "

wordfactory Wed 15-May-13 19:18:49

Friend: Wow you've pinged back into shape quickly [slight note of concern] ...it must be because you're naturally skinny.

OP: Sod off bitch! I am starving myself and you should bloody well congratulate me!

YANBU

Tell them 'sod off I have an eating disorder'.

Also, go to your GP and tell them the same.
