Many of us have gained some lockdown pounds during the coronavirus pandemic.
After all, with gyms being closed, commutes being cancelled and activities being thin on the ground we’ve spent a fair while on the sofa.
Frankly, we’re happy to have healthy bodies during the pandemic whether we’re half a stone up or not.
However, one mum was devastated after a neighbour began making fun of her weight online.
Posting on Mumsnet, the parent explained that she had posted on Facebook about going back to the gym in 2021.
She was excited having gained some weight during lockdown.
How would you have reacted? Tell us in the comments…
The mum added: "Neighbour posted a GIF of a whale.
“I ignored it.
“She sent me a Facebook message full of whale pictures."
Trying to ignore the bizarre comments, she replied ”very funny”, but was soon attacked with snaps of "aircraft carriers and the marshmallow man".

The next day, she found her neighbour had printed off photos of whales and shoved them through her letter box.
She explained: "I didn’t actually see her do it but obviously it was her.
"I sent her a message saying 'there is such a thing of taking things too far…' and she replied with a pic of Shrek."
Once more, the woman took the high road and ignored it.
However, the next day she found that the usually “well-mannered” mum-of-two, who is a children’s nurse, had posted two more whale photos through the door.
She said: "When she did the ones on Facebook I assumed she was drunk and didn’t bother to react but now I’m thinking she’s lost the plot.
"She’s normally very nice!! This is out of character."
Thinking she must have offended the other parent, she said that she had accidentally knocked a bow off her tree and run over it with her car.

So, she sent an apology and offered to buy a new one.
The woman sent through more photos of whales and then added: "I thought the bow blew off in the wind and you had just ran over it several times?
“Don’t worry about it, no harm done."
Fellow Mumsnet users were baffled.
One wrote: “This is insane and bullying!
“Really bad behaviour.”
“Ignore and she’ll get bored,” added another.
Some asked whether it could be her children playing a prank and the mum didn’t know.
However, others were on the other mum’s side.
"She sounds hilarious – especially replying with Shrek,” added one mum.
