I'm 5'1" and in May last year I started going on a diet because I was overweight (I was 177 pounds) and I wanted to really loose weight. So I signed up for weight watchers and I've been watching what I eat. Since starting the diet, I've lost 30 pounds which is really good and I'm about to reach my second goal I set myself. I'm still planning on loosing more weight since I'd like to lose at least 15 more pounds. Weight Watchers (in case you don't know) is all about the points system and foods have different points. There is a set limit of points you have per day and a set of points you have per week. You can eat what you'd like as long as you stay within your points.
My friends and bf are really supportive of my diet, but my family thinks that I'm already skinny despite my doctor telling in April last year that I was overweight and needed to lose weight. They all think that I'm abstaining from all the fattening foods and that I should live a little. My mom especially tells me that I'm skinny enough and tries to force me to eat things that completely use up all my points. When I eat a little bit (so I don't blow all my points), she then gets mad that I don't finish everything. Now I'm going to be honest and say that my family does eat a lot of fast food and high fat foods. They are also big fans of the clean the plate fan club and big portions. They don't like it when people don't finish all their food on their plate. They also don't believe much in working out so naturally most of my family is overweight. When I eat half, my family gets upsets and comments about it. Its really gets me upset since it is almost as if they are trying to make me feel guilty about wanting to take care of myself and work out. I'm not obsessive of what I eat or spend most of my time working out. Plus from time to time I will splurge a bit. But I've worked really hard to to lose weight and I've really proud at what I've accomplished so far.
I've tried telling them respectfully that I'm watching what I eat, but they still get upset when I eat half of some of the foods they are getting. Are there any other ways to tell them politely and firmly that they need to be more respectful of how I eat?
