Another responder wrote, “You’ve done nothing wrong; she isn’t being fat-shamed. She’s probably just jumping on the bandwagon of the Internet claiming that being told something healthy is fat shaming.”

A different person stated, “She should have been honest with you and herself that she’s not currently into getting healthier, so you wouldn’t waste your time cooking special meals for her and encouraging her.”
