If you read one of my journal entries from Fri. (kind of long), you'll see that my sister-in-law also has an eating disorder, although she won't admit it. How do I deal with being around her when she is so competitive about who is thinner, asking me questions about how much I weigh, actually tugging at my clothes if I say they're tight, etc.? What's worse is when she thinks I'm thinner (which is rare as she is really thin)- she'll quickly lose weight. I feel awful and huge next to her and it ruins what could be happy occassions. She is family, so I can't just stay away from her. We have said any discussion of weight is off-limits, but she still says things. I try to just brush her off, but... Help! The holidays and esp. New Year's Eve is coming and I can't get out of it. How can I be okay with myself?
