    I've been visiting my grandparents a lot lately since I am in LA for work. Everytime I visit my grandma she tries to make lunch or dinner for me even though I repeatedly tell her that I am not hungry. When I do give in and tell her I'll have a meal she would always load my plate with TONS of food. I am talking about enough food for at least three people. She also gives me a second serving before I am even done. When I try to turn her down she would tell me that I am too thin and I should be eating more... I am 5'7" and 160lbs... I think I am far from being thin... if anything I am overweight. Granted, her food is amazing, I cannot stand it. My grandma on my dad's side does the exact same thing. They always seem to offer me food. They won't take no for an answer. I know its out of love but calm down grandmas.

    Do you guys have grandmas who want you to become heifers? I don't get it. Maybe its just my family.

    My grandmother on my mother's side is the most purely evil person I have ever encountered.

    My grandmother on my father's side is greedy and materialized and enjoys activities that involve the words Neiman Marcus.

    Let's just say neither is rushing to fix me up a plate of anything icon_neutral.gif

    My mother does that to me now. But she gets to see me only once or twice a year, so I'll play along. And the food is fantastic, so I'm easily convinced.

    Back when my grandmother on my dad's side was alive, she did the same exact thing. From the time I was a little kid until I was in my 20s, she was CONSTANTLY trying to feed me. Once, when I was maybe 8 or 9, I went to spend two weeks with my grandparents during the summer while my parents went on vacation. By the time my parents got back, I had gained so much weight most of my pants no longer fit.

    I think my grandmother meant well and that constantly offering food, in her mind, was a way of showing she loved me. icon_smile.gif

    Yeah mine feeds me her entire fridge every time I go back to New Jersey. I always end up eating more food than I should but I never decline it because she got up and took the time to make it for me. It seems like she gets happy when she gets to cook for me and even happier when I eat.

    My Grandma does the same thing...except she's now at the age that she should stop cooking. She feel as if making things a week or two in advance and freezing them makes them better. Ever had cooked, thawed and reheated mashed potatoes?! They're not good...icon_confused.gif

    I'd give anything to have just one more day in Grandma's kitchen. She'd wake every morning, put on a robe, go to the stove to fire up the comal before she'd even start her coffee. She feed everyone! No matter the time of day or if you had already eaten, when you stepped into her home you were fed. Family, friends, neighbors, friends of freinds, all were welcome.

    When I was in my 20s I was visiting my parents. In one breath my mom says "You know Rob, you could stand to lose 15 lbs. Here, eat this last piece of lasagna or I will have to throw it out".

    AvadaKedavra, eat the plate and make her happy, you are far far from overweight.

    My mom's mom was from Memphis, Tennessee. Every time I saw her growing up, everything she fed us was fried. But I wasn't complaining back then. She made the absolute best country-fried steak!

    It was a generational thing, since during the great depression, many farms weren't producing as much crops as they could. My grandma- also part of said generation- cooks a LOT of food and serves a lot to my sis and I. I think I gained 2 lbs in 2 days last weekend visiting her out in South Dakota.

    my grandma is interesting.

    I saw her last christmas and she said not to eat to much because college girls don't want fat boys and that if I get fat I "won't get any sex."

    thanks grandma. icon_neutral.gif

    Sometimes grandmothers overfeed their grandchildren because the alternative might involve talking to them.

    My entire fucking family is like that. It drives me crazy. Every time I visit any one of them they feed me too much food. I always tell them to not load my plate up and they never listen (and they always ask me if i want seconds even after I make it clear that I do not want any more to eat). I always feel bad when I never finish it and I don't have to courage lash out at them either.

    (It sounds somewhat like me when I have guests, but I'm understanding if they don't finish the food/drink. Hospitality is of major importance.)

    I used to see my grandmother on my mothers side every day, but i had to stop , because every time i visit she keeps offering me food and most of the time im weak and cant say no and she wont take no for an answer either. She also tells me I have lost too much weight and im too thin. I love her though icon_smile.gif

    My grandmother on my mother's side never fed me as much as a cracker, much less a meal. I never thought about it until just now, but she never once invited us over for a meal.

    I lived with my grandmother on my father's side. She pretty much raised me. If there was a heaven, she would be there. She always made full meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, followed by a hearty snack before bedtime. I don't know why we were all thin. Her trick was to constantly pass dishes of food around the table, trying to get all of us to eat more. "You can't live on love," she used to say. LOL.

    Do I smell a little Appalachia-style interfamily sexual rendezvous?

    Its getting bad with my grandmother. I went to visit her once and I fell asleep on the couch. I wake up and she's about to shove a spoonful of rice and beans down my throat. She told me that I don't eat enough and that I'm skin and bones. Right before I fell asleep on the couch, I ate two plates of pork chops, rice and beans, fried plantains and some bread. Skin and bones my ass!

    I remember in 2001, my Grandmother had a stroke. She was home from the hospital and I told her that I was going come see her. So she decided to make some rolls from scratch for me. When I got there they were ready and she watched me eat the whole pan. Needless to say she was so happy.

    That is what grandmas do......they make good food and it gives them pleasure to watch the grandkids eat it up icon_smile.gif.

    My grandma does the same stuff. She is awesome though. She texts, works out 3 times a week, and even facebooks haha.

    Last week she commented on my cousins photo in a skimpy dress. "You look like a whore"......I died when my cousin told me ha
