I'm really hurt and embarrassed.
I was in a study group with my math professor and I got really hungry. I didn't want to leave to go all the way to the dining hall to get something "healthy" to eat 'cause I was afraid I'd miss something in my group, so I went to the vending machine just outside the room and got a donut. When I came back in the room (I had already had a bite of the donut) my professor looked up and said, "that's nice, a nursing major eating a donut." I almost died. Everyone looked at me and said nothing I was really embarassed 'cause I am a little overweight and I realize that wasn't a healthy choice, but it really made me feel bad.
just needed to vent

"that's nice, a nursing major eating a donut."
I would have said "That's nice, an instructor taking it upon themselve to attempt to embarrass a student with their sarcastic unwarranted remark."
Obviously a donut isn't the healthiest choice in the world (they didn't need to point this out), but your food choice (you were hungry, but that's not their business) should never be used as an example, nor should it be used as an opportunity to draw attention to someone like that.
That was very immature of the instructor.
