Guys help me out with something.

Long story short, my mother photoshopped a photo of herself and posted it on social media.

When she was doing it, my sisters and I were telling her how unnecessary, obvious and embarrassing it was. She of course is bull headed and still did it.

My grandmother mentioned how nice the picture looked. It was all 3 of her girls, plus my moms photoshopped stomach.

I said, “that photoshopped photo?” Amazed she’d actually gone through with it and she went off. I’m so judgmental and a hater is essentially what she said. I can admit, I have no filter, so what I think is what I say. I didn’t mean any offense by it, but I was just amazed. It just came out.

Not only did I not want her to do it for the reasons previously mentioned, but it bothered me that she’s always mentioning how I should be ok with my body image. She tells me I cover up too much and have little self confidence. Also, she’s always been critical on social media and it’s impact on mental health. As a principal, she always mentions how it only does two things, starts fights between kids and cause insecurities in kids. The insecurity part is that they don’t realize that the things people post aren’t always the reality. (Bodies included). So, it just amazed me that this same woman thought this was ok.

Am I wrong here? Won’t be offended if you say I am.

You're wrong for calling out the photoshop to grandma but not from wanting to stop your mom. Its our jobs as good friends and children to keep our love ones from embarrassing themselves!

you weren't wrong. my mom has a history of doing embarrassing shit after knowing better and it has always backfired ... picture it...Quick walmart run during a huge storm. she just had to go out and get some ice cream and took my brother with her. although there were signs everywhere that said FLOODING , she chose to go down that damn road even though my brother told her he didn't think she should. welp long story short, the fire department had to go fish them out of the damn ditch. and I'm glad she wasn't hurt, but I can't help but laugh at the fact that she was out there in a damn nightgown sans panties all because she thinks she knows every damn thing.

Can you take more flattering photos of your mom for her to post on social media? I'm a little invested in this now :ROFLMAO:
I’ll have to get my sisters to. I moved out of state, we just happened to be on vacation together now.

As an update, my aunt accidentally posted the unedited version of the picture. I kept my composure and didn’t laugh. But, the irony. Apparently they fought about it, but I wasn’t there. My sister told me.

How you going to tell your mom not to do something, she grown
Someone above mentioned Chris Brown’s mother. They were laughing in the comment. Don’t want that to be my mom. It starts with small things like the waist and works it’s way into the entire face & body. Look at this Khloe Kardashian thing going on today. People are attacking her for photoshop.

I say leave her alone, she had three kids, at least she is not trying to get a bbl or something.
she slimmed down her stomach, so what...probably for her high school haters.

leave her alone, everyone wants to improve on something and they haven't made strides yet.
if she is a good mother outside of that, I see nothing wrong.
(someone show her how to not go so hard and be subtle next time/leave a lil stomach)

now if she plopped her head on a celeb's body, there are issues.

Sounds like your mom is coming from a place of ‘do as I say, not as I do.’ Let her do her. I’m sure she has her reasons for posting the pic. I’ve never photoshopped a pic but if I chose to do so that’s my business. I have two teenagers and I too would ignore what they have to say.

i disagree with everyone in here.
tell sis to take it down.

Next thing you know her photo is being posted on the shade room and the same people telling you to mind your business on LSA are gonna be the same ones laughing when she becomes a meme.

Technically 5 kids and I think my mom looks spectacular, especially for 5. I’ll definitely have to help her out.

You were wrong. I dont understand why her photoshopped picture bothers you so much. There's nothing wrong with her putting her best foot forward. Does she look slimmer than you in the photoshopped picture or something? Because you do sound like a hater.

Sounds like you have an issue with your weight. Her real feelings about being overweight shouldn't be a surprise to you. Clearly she was just being nice with her kind words and encouragement about your size....she probably would say same of height. But if you're uncomfortable with your wight, lose it.
