My Mum Says I am Too Fat
Patricia Tsai, 30, is founder of a London jewellery brand. She has a boyfriend and lives in Islington, North London. She is 5ft tall and 7st 9lb. She says:
at school, my mother used to say: ‘I can’t believe you’re getting so big, you’re going to look like a ball!’ My mum’s Taiwanese and can be harsh about appearance, even though I know she loves me to pieces. It’s a cultural thing.
So I kind of need the reassurance of stepping on the scales to remember I am a healthy weight and don’t need to worry. I weigh myself at home and at the gym.
Although she’s not skinny herself, my mum thinks I should be about a stone lighter. It used to chip away at my confidence. The lightest I’ve ever been is around 7st 5lb but for me, that’s still too thin. I’m happy as I am.
My Western diet is probably one reason I’m not as slim as many people in Taiwan. I eat lots of fruit and vegetables but a ridiculous amount of carbs too, which aren’t as present in the Taiwanese diet. But I much prefer how relaxed we are here.
