Done being the fat girl!

I have struggled with my weight all my life, I am so tired of hearing "You have such a pretty face, you'd be a knock out if you lost some weight". I am not really as concerned with what everyone else thinks as much as I am wanting to be healthier.

I have an 12 year old that is struggling to eat healthier and exercise as well. He is 200 pounds and 5'8". I encourage him to exercise with me and tell him not to eat certain foods, but I don't want to nag him. I just get so frustrated ...

I have an 12 year old that is struggling to eat healthier and exercise as well. He is 200 pounds and 5'8". I encourage him to exercise with me and tell him not to eat certain foods, but I don't want to nag him. I just get so frustrated when I talk to him about eating healthy. I don't want to constantly say things to him about what he is eating because 1. I had something to do with his eating habits. 2. He is a kid and I want him to have fun. and finally 3. My mother talked about weight with me and I think I just ate to rebel.

I have been unemployed since October 2008.

UPDATE***
In February 2010 my son and I joined the YMCA. I have lost another 3.75 inches from doing that and lost 5 pounds. I think I am gaining muscle so I am not so concerned about the weight loss right now. My body needed a switch up. Cant wait to go to the pool in May!
