I just have to get this off my chest today. I have been trying to focus on the holidays in a positive light and enjoy the company that I will be in. I do enjoy my family but I also feel very self-conscious whenever I am with them. I feel very comfortable with my husband's family who are all normal weight. Since my parents lost weight I am the only heavy one left. I have a husband who cannot gain weight if he tries (and eats desserts every day) and a very skinny son. My siblings are all of normal weight - my sister models. I hate the feeling I get when I am around them - I wonder if they are thinking "is she ever going to lose the weight -she just keeps getting bigger every year". Does anyone have any ideas to help me through this because I just want to enjoy my holidays.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
