I know thatís not a big deal but now she has gotten her a personal trainer and has albums dedicated to it on FB In her skimpy workout cloths with before and after pics of the muscle she is building. She is 17. Not in any sports or modeling. Is that odd? Some people unfollowed her. I donít want to. I know some people will post the cliche itís none of my business. But she makes it our business when she posts it.

If the daughter is cool with it, so be it. Who knows, maybe the girl is trying to become an instagram influencer or whatever.

Some people live vicariously through their children. I think it's odd personally, but I don't really give a hoot one way or the other.

What did she say when you asked her about it?

Sounds like she is needy for attention and is getting it through her daughter. I know several friends like this. If it bothers you, just scroll on by.

I unfollow people who do that. I can't stand people are so fascinated with themselves that they take and post pics of themselves all day long.

Well...the MOTHER is posting pictures of her daughter. Not herself.


I have a facebook friend who's always posting pictures of herself running marathons and working out. I just scroll on by. This is apparently, the most interesting thing about her. Such is life.

Yes, she is doing both. There are competitions for female bodybuilding and fitness. My friend's daughter does it.

You won't know 'til you ask her probably.

But is it the case perhaps that her daughter was seriously overweight and has managed to dramatically reverse this, etc. If this were the case then perhaps the mother is just very proud of her effort.

On the other hand, what is the mother like or has been like....thinking mainly of appearance, I guess? Perhaps if she herself considers herself to be unattractive then, as someone has suggested, she may feel that she is getting some points from her daughter's success.

Without the details: my mother was unable to achieve a particular goal in her life, one that made her feel inferior as she was a very competitive and conventional person. She made no secret of the fact that my accomplishing this would be a star in her crown. I had no interest, which became a/the major bone of contention in our relationship. And later in life she disliked the fact that my stepsister had done this....and behaved a badly toward her because of it.

That experience showed me how much a parent may seek fulfillment through something a child does that they could not. And this makes me wonder if this mother might be compensating for something with these FB albums of her daughter.
