Family can be the best support, or the worst saboteurs! My fiance isn't really 'up to speed' with me as far as weight loss is concerned, even though he can stand to lose a few pounds himself. My family says they're supportive, but I think it's more that they're supportive only in theory, but when it comes to practice, they're really not that interested. When I first started this journey, I'd get mad 1-because my fiance wouldn't do this with me, and 2-because he still ate his junk food in front of me. It's taken me quite some time to realize that if I want this bad enough, then it won't matter what other people around me are eating. People are going to eat. It happens. I wouldn't ask a perfect stranger to stop eating junk food just because they happen to be around me with it, so why would I ask anyone else just because they're family?
As far as eating his leftovers, you can politely say 'no' to that, and let him know firmly that you are not interested, and that you would appreciate it if he stopped offering you his left overs. One of my goals for this year was to say 'no' to offers of other people's left overs. I'm not a dog, and I will not eat some one else's would-be garbage.
That said, you can still eat pizza and live healthy lifestyle. I had pizza for lunch today and a serving of ice cream too. It's about making the changes over a long period of time, and I know for a fact that I can't give up either of those for life!
I also had trouble exercising in front of others. Especially work out videos for some reason! I'm not sure why, but I always thought he'd be laughing at me, but one time I just said "to hell with it" and exercised. When I was done, he gave me a big hug and told me how proud he is of me. It turns out, he wasn't staring at me, but when he did see me working out, he was happy for me for finally wanting it bad enough to just do it regardless of who's around.
You can do this! It is absolutely possible to get through it.
Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be
