This may sound negative but:
You are allowed to dislike your body, no matter what size you are!
My god, nothing is more aggravating than being invalidated about my own self-hate! Telling me I cannot feel such a way and/or comparing me to yourself as if that is somehow going to magically change the way I think or feel about my body is completely useless and even hurtful. Having to buy smaller clothing does not somehow translate into this wonderful unconditional love for my physical shape!
All things aside: You are allowed to have and sit in negative feelings. It is okay and normal to have negative thoughts and feelings (unless they are excessive and harmful, as in a clinical depression.) It is impossible and inhuman to be positive all the time.
So next time, you can either agree with how frustrating it is to have these thoughts or GTFO.
I really didn’t want to eat as much as I did today, but when your grandma wants to share a gigantic cinnamon roll, by God you share a gigantic cinnamon roll with her.
