Good luck with the talk and working it out with the in-laws. I personally would rather let someone read my diary than let them know I'm trying to lose weight, so if you're similarly minded, would it help to use code words, like "paying attention to portion size"?
I feel your pain, somewhat vicariously. My BIL is doing Weight Watchers and my MIL (his mother) was always on him to calculate his points, and she also said to everyone at the table that the breakfast she was serving was VERY HEALTHY and GOOD FOR [BIL] to eat. Jeez, give it a rest!
Another thing: it might be hard to swallow this, but if she or anyone comments on your food, that's almost always about them.
We've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas.
Happiness is not a goal, it is a by-product.
