Slim Woman’s Jealous Sister-in-Law Calls Her ‘Fatphobic’ After She Tells Her Everyone Should Exercise

A woman was recently accused of being ‘fatphobic’ after she told her sister-in-law that everyone should exercise and those who don’t simply have bad excuses. Here’s what she had to say.

A few years ago, when the woman was in her late 20s, she realized she could no longer indulge her taste buds around the clock without paying the price. 

She started gaining weight quickly, which didn’t sit well with her active lifestyle. It wasn’t about appearances for her; she just felt uncomfortable with herself when carrying extra kilos.

The woman explained, “I like to hike and be outdoorsy, and I was struggling to do those things. I made adjustments to my dietI began to eat very clean at home so that I could just eat whatever I wanted when I went out and not have to obsess.”

When the woman explained her plan to her then-boyfriend (now husband), they both decided to make healthier eating choices together for the sake of their long-term health.

Furthermore, she took up running for 30–40 minutes every day, did weekly strength training, and spent several hours every week at the gym. The couple also enjoyed frequent hikes together.

As a result of these lifestyle changes, the husband and his wife maintained athletic figures despite indulging whenever they went out at the weekend.

However, the woman faced constant criticism from her sister-in-law, who often made comments about their “privileged skinny genes” and joked that they “eat like cows.”

Although the athletic woman tried to explain that the indulgence her sister-in-law witnessed during their weekly outings didn’t reflect their usual diet, her sister-in-law didn’t seem convinced.

The sister-in-law herself was overweight and didn’t exercise. She was also unaware of the types of meals the health-conscious couple prepared at home because she only saw them when they were indulging as a weekly treat.

On the woman’s birthday, she felt that her sister-in-law crossed a line by sarcastically referring to her as “God’s favorite” and a “skinny mean girl.” 

Fed up with these comments, the woman defended herself, explaining that her healthy body shape was a direct result of her disciplined lifestyle.

The sister-in-law countered, whining that she wasn’t fortunate enough to love exercise as the woman did, and she was ‘privileged’ that she enjoyed it.

The frustrated woman said, “I snapped at her after that because I actually hate running 50% of the time, but I do it anyway because exercise is good for everyone, and most people don’t have any good excuse not to.”

She Sent a Long Message

After the argument, the sister sent the woman a long message accusing her of being fatphobic and asserting that she had no right to comment on her lifestyle. 

The woman responded that she was tired of her sister’s jealousy-driven comments and that the larger woman had been the one commenting on her own lifestyle. She asked her sister to stop talking to her altogether, refrain from commenting, and focus on herself.

The Family Was Divided

Half of her family sided with her, while the other half believed she should have been more sensitive. The woman, however, maintained her stance. 

She reiterated that she and her husband had changed their diet and workout routines for their own sake and did not preach to others. However, they were both tired of being enviously criticized for ‘luck’ when they worked so hard to stay in shape.

Was She Fatphobic?

Because some of the family still sided with her sister-in-law, the woman was left wondering whether she was wrong to speak the truth so plainly, or if she should have been more sensitive to the other woman’s weight struggles.

Unsure, she turned to the internet for answers. Were her words reasonable, given the amount of unfairly jealous commentary she had received?

People Responded

One Redditor commented, “She is bullying you and making repeated unwelcome comments about your body and health. The family should have zero tolerance for that kind of thing.”

Another person agreed, “As a fat person myself, what you said is far from fatphobic, and she should honestly be ashamed of her jealousy towards you and your husband. You had every right to stand up for yourself.”
