Shopping is a fun activity for most women. But the situation is quite different for 18-year-old Betty Kubovy-Weiss. For Kubovy-Weiss, unlike her peers and peers, shopping becomes “torment” rather than entertainment.

Struggling with body image issues for most of her life, the freshman often bursts into tears at her store kiosks. Saying that one of the most important sources of these negative experiences was a store that sold with the “one size fits all/standard size” philosophy, Kubovy-Weiss says: “I couldn’t put clothes in this store, and that’s was really hurtful to me.”

MOTHER ANNOUNCED THE PROBLEMS TO MILLIONS

Like many people, Kubovy-Weiss’ body image issues began at a very young age. But there’s one very important detail that sets her apart: Weight Issues was written about by her mother, Dara-Lynn Weiss, and published in Vogue and shared with millions of people.

Yes, you read that right… Betty’s mother, Dara-Lynn Weiss, wrote about the clinical obesity of her baby girl, who weighed 42 pounds in 2012.

Exactly four pages were devoted to the article, which was embellished with special shots of Kubovy-Weiss, who was only seven years old at the time, and photos of mother and daughter. The mother detailed her daughter’s clinical obesity in the article.

“There was absolutely nothing she didn’t like to eat,” she wrote of her daughter. He even cleared the plates that were in the adult portions. Weiss said that, under the guidance of a childhood obesity specialist, he put his daughter on a strict and lengthy “diet,” and specifically avoided the word “diet.”

Registered dietitian Brigitte Zeitlin advises children not to lose weight without the advice of a doctor and says: “When you follow a restrictive diet, you teach children not a healthy way to eat, but the shame of food. and their bodies, and an irregular diet”.

“I TAKE HOT CHOCOLATE FROM HIS HAND, I THROWED IT”

Weiss said her daughter’s dinner portions were cut in half when her diet began, desserts were off the table and even her favorite drink, hot chocolate, was taken away from her.

The mother, who did not allow her daughter to drink her hot chocolate when the barista could not inform her of the calorie count at the cafe they went to one day, said: ‘I took the drink out of her hand in dramatic fashion, I threw her in the trash can and rushed over. At the end of the year, my daughter lost 7 kilos and grew 5 centimeters”.

Describing the dialogue they had after her daughter lost weight, Weiss wrote:

“When I ask him if he likes the way he looks now, if he’s proud of what he’s achieved, he says ‘Yes’.”

YEARS AFTER HE CONFIRMED HE HAS THEIR PROBLEMS! “BRUTAL, SELFISH…”

After all that, Weiss faced a serious backlash. Weiss was described as “brutal, immature and impressed with her own dysfunctional attitude towards food”, and was described as “one of the most selfish women to grace the pages of the magazine”.

Weiss, who referred to her daughter as “Bea” in the article, also wrote that the situation made her question her parenting methods, describing her own insecurities about food.

Weiss admitted she had eating and weight issues, noting that she took laxatives as a teenager and “begged” a doctor friend to give her appetite suppressants.

Dara-Lynn Weiss also wrote a book called “The Heavy: A Mother, A Daughter, A Diet” in 2013, following her Vogue article about her daughter.

So what was “subject” Kubovy-Weiss going through and feeling while all of this was going on?

“I USED MY BODY AS A WEAPON AGAINST HIM”

Speaking to Insider, Kubovy-Weiss says her weight loss also causes her to have a complex relationship with her body.

I ate badly when I wanted to hurt my mother. I would use my body as a weapon against him. Being thinner made him happy, I knew that, but I didn’t always want to make him happy.

Kubovy-Weiss, who also has a younger brother, explains how the food motif that existed in their lives growing up fundamentally shaped mother-daughter relationships: “It has long been the main topic of our conversations and fights. . This has characterized our relationship for many years,” he says.

HE DIDN’T READ THE ARTICLE WRITTEN BY HIS MOTHER

Kubovy-Weiss still hasn’t read the “Weight Watcher” article written by her mother, 10 years after it was published. However, Kubovy-Weiss says she has read the memoir “The Heavy: A Mother, A Daughter, A Diet,” also written by her mother, which was published in 2013.

Kubovy-Weiss admits she had a lot of fun during the photoshoot even though she didn’t read the magazine article. It was like the best day of my life. They brought me many dresses and did my hair and makeup. I thought, ‘I’m a model. It was great fun,” he says.

UNEXPECTED CONFESSION… “I THINK I LOSE YOU A LOT”

Kubovy-Weiss, 18, doesn’t judge her mother for dieting, she thinks her intentions weren’t bad. Kubovy-Weiss, who also explained that her mother said, “I think I made you lose a lot,” says she was very surprised by this confession, “Because I didn’t expect this for her to admit that she went too far with the regime.”

SOCIETY PUSHES TO BE CONTINUALLY SLIMMER

Her mother, on the other hand, is still high on Kubovy-Weiss’ mind when it comes to weight. Still, she tries not to be swayed by what her mother might think when making a decision.

Kubovy-Weiss also talks about how growing up she felt embarrassed about being overweight, being bullied, and times when she wished she was thinner.

girl’s feelingsI feel more confident when I feel better about my body. And because of the society we live in, I feel better about my body when I’m thinner.” express it in words.

HE LIED TO ATTEND THE SPINNING LESSON

Being thinner was so important to him that he sometimes went to extremes. For example, she lied about her age to take an adult spinning class when she was only 10 years old.

“I said that I was ten years older to be able to follow the courses. I was too young to be there, but I did it anyway,” says Kubovy-Weiss, who can now talk about ongoing body image issues.

HE STARTED USING DRUGS TO CONTROL HUNGER

Kubovy-Weiss, who describes herself as ‘curvy’ and says she’s a ‘body activist’, admitted she recently started using a prescription drug to control hunger after trying dozens of diets, adding: “I made this decision after thinking for a long time. I have tried dozens of meal and exercise plans. “I got to a point where I was on a diet for ten years,” she says.

His mother wrote an article about him when he was 7 years old... 11 years later, this child is again on the agenda.

The youngster, who has had a weight problem all her life, says it’s very tiring to think about it all the time, and she describes her body image as a “constant struggle”.

FAT FOPHIA CULTURE FINAL!

Kubovy-Weiss,I am aware that all of my weight control plans and habits emerged from this “fat phobia culture” and I don’t blame myself. I don’t think it’s my fault that there is a social desire for the weak body.” he speaks.

The youngster, who is also giving a message she wants everyone to embrace, says the following, as someone who has been bullied her whole life, whose weight issue has been shared with millions of people at an early age who were forced to diet:

We should leave people alone and let them do what they want with their bodies…
