So I'll start off by saying I'm 19 and I switch between living at college for 8 months of the year and at home with my parents during the summer. I started seriously training less than a year ago and have made some decent progress.
Anyways I hadn't been home in a while and I roll in the door a good 20 pounds heavier than last time my parents had seen me. At this point my mother staged an on the spot intervention claiming that I have turned myself into a freak and that I look like shit cause I've been training hard and doing nothing but eat (to which I couldn't help but laugh because I'm 185 lbs and 6'0). When I explained to her that I'm actually on the smaller end of the scale compared to people I workout with her response was "well then your gym friends are freaks of nature". When I said that I was planning on continuing to gain weight over the summer she decided that I had a mental disorder and needed to see a psychiatrist and that this whole trying to change how I look thing is nothing more than pure narcism.
The next few days things got worse when she witnessed the insane/idiotic diet consisting of steak, eggs, chicken and oatmeal (albeit a shit load of it.. and the occasional pop tart for good measure (I'm a skinny bastard)). So now she's called my doctor to set up an appointment (that I have to go to or I'm cut off) so he can smack some sense into me.
My question to anyone reading is, have you ever dealt with some one like this? How exactly do you do it? I tried blabbering on about how I still eat relatively healthy clean foods and explaining that you need to create a calorie surplus to put on muscle. I think she can't wrap her head around that some one would want to change how they look/ get bigger.
