pretty much my entire family except my older brother and sister. I think my bunny is a little, but she deserves to be since she was waaaaay too skinny when I adopted her.

Everyone along my gene pool, with the exception of two sisters who are vastly underweight. We have all had emotional eating issues for along time.

My mom is overweight, but she only became overweight after trying for another child for a few years (she had several miscarriages in a row). She then became overworked trying to get full professor, and as my sister and I grew up, there was less and less need for healthy family meals as us kids wouldn't often be home for dinner. We had healthier meals when the Miracle Baby (my tiny sister) was born, but as if my mom didn't have enough going on, she was diagnosed with MGUS and pernicious anemia and didn't have the energy to make dinner, and now I'm in college... so. My dad is technically overweight, but he works outside doing manual labor for "fun" (no, seriously, nothing makes him happier than moving gravel, chopping wood, doing yard work). He is very dense and very strong but also has a bit of a beer belly. My little sister is a bit of a chunkster, but she is now in dance and is leaning out and making healthier choices for herself (learning to listen to her body, choose fruits over candy, etc). Older sister has gained some weight, too, but that's mostly because she and her boyfriend eat fast food and bacon-wrapped hot dogs and buffalo wings constantly.

In my immediate family, none. Within the SILs and BILs, I would say 3. Happy to say though, NONE of the children have weight problems.

Both parents are. My sister is, though she has been thin at times. Both my living grandparents are.

Most of my aunts and uncles and about half my cousins. I'm the only one of my immediate family that has always been overweight. Both parents were thin when they were younger and my sister didn't put on weight until high school, but definitely not many "normal" weight people in our clan.

None. I'm the only one who really struggles with weight issues. I'm at goal now, but my weight has cycled for years (my high being 161, which is high for 5'2"). There are other addictions however.
