    As long as you eat healthy and feel physically fit I don't see what the problem is. Anyway, aren't you of full age by now? Sure you're parent's opinion is important to you, they are your parents. But part of growing up is freeing yourself from that inner need to please them.

    You aren't obese. How do you feel about your physique?

    But since you require total honesty, and despite everything that has been said here, I think you could benefit from losing a little weight.
    Thanks for being honest.

    Now, they might just dismiss it as "damn quack doctor what does he know" but then you still have a doctor's opinion on your side. And if you were obese, going to the doctor to get nutrition advice/measure blood pressure and so on would be totally normal. Even for a yearly physical they should measure weight, so make sure your parents are there when you ask the doctor if he think you are obese.

    I think this is the best thing you can do to stop them from harassing you. Other than moving out asap. They're seriously delusional and worse, hurting you with their delusions.

    edit: it's not good to compare yourself to others, though. TONS of people are over- or underweight. Compare yourself to what doctors think is a healthy shape. You may or may not be slightly "overweight" by medical terms, hard to tell from that picture (I'm guessing you're well within healthy range, though), but you're certainly not obese, that much is clear.
    They won't believe our doctor, she's overweight.

    They're hypocrites. My father has a beer belly for as long as I can remember and my mother used to be chubbier than me at age 19.

    I wasn't joking about the pastic surgery. If I lose weight, I lose my curves too and I can't let that happen! I wouldn't feel good about myself without them. I don't really want to please my parents, I'm just tired of their nagging. About the doctor thing, I know they won't listen to our doctor, because our doctor isn't the skinniest person on earth either and they don't trust our doctor anyway.

    Honestly? I love the way I look and I wouldn't like to look any different (okay, maybe a bit more feminine, but how the hell do I reach that, huh?). I know I can't wear everything with this body, skinny jeans and stuff, but I don't mind. I don't even understand what's the appeal of all the underweight models and celebrities we've been seeing on tv. How can that be sexy? I think it must be pretty uncomfortable for men to have sex with them, with all those bones sticking out.

    See a different one if you can? I'm not surprised if they don't believe a doctor though, they're clearly delusional at least with this issue. Maybe they're purposefully exaggerating because they see you gaining weight and they think you'll reach an unhealthy weight at the rate you're going? So they're trying to scare you into losing weight now, when it'll be much much easier than it would be if you were actually obese?

    Just trying to see any positive possible explanations...

    Even before I started to gain weight, they were complaining about it, this has been going on for let's say two years or something. They even complain less now that I gained weight, can you imagine? It's not that I can't lose weight (it's a piece of cake for me, I lost lots of weight in two weeks three years ago and it lasted, until I lost my measuring tape), I just don't want to. I have this feeling that they want me to look like amodel and the last thing I'd want is looking like a model (that would be so unsexy). A few weeks ago there was this photoshopped advertisement for some sort of diet in our local newspaper with a super skinny model in it. Then I said I wouldn't want to look like that. My parents could not believe me. Then I asked them if looking like that would be realistic and healthy. They said it was. This is the picture in the ad:

    I have the original picture somewhere in my blog, but that's not mportant right now. In my eyes they're just holding me to unrealistic and unsexy standards. I don't understand how parents would want their children to look like photoshopped models?

    See the thing is, if subjective opinion is what you value most, then I can't even think of one female celebrity/public figure who EVERYONE thinks is perfect body-wise. There are always people who will think she is either "too fat" or "too skinny". And because subjective opinion varies so much, you should surround yourself with people who think of your body in the way you want it to be thought of (positive-they exist!), and pretty much write-off/ignore those who think you are "too fat/skinny". The haters opinion don't matter. When I saw your picture, I thought this thread was a joke because I don't see anything even remotely close to being heavily obese, and if what you say about your parents is true, then your parents are part of the opinion group you need to write off.

    Which brings me to the issue of BMI. I don't know much about BMI, but it's supposedly the objective medical measure of body weight. Like I said, people have all sorts of opinions, and BMI won't always match up with people's subjective opinions of what is physically healthy or physically attractive looking, but if you are at all health-conscious, BMI would be a good place to start. I personally dislike the BMI chart, because some of what it considers to be under-or overweight is still very VERY attractive or aesthetically appealing to me.

    So, hmm. I think the most important thing is to be happy with your own weight/look, whatever measure you use.

    To be honest I'm more focussed on my proportions than on my exact weight. Like I said, three years ago I lost a lot of weight (my family just didn't stop nagging) and when I was finally ready, my proportions were all messed up. Right now I have a waist-hip ratio of 0.68 and back than it was around 0.75. That's way more important to me than having a belly (which is always the same with me and it's so easy to cover up anyway). I even feel more confident about the way I look than when I lost all that weight. Back then I hated the way I looked when I was fitting clothes, now I love fitting clothes again. But I think I'm about to reach my limits when it comes to proportions (or I really need to gain more weight, because in my case everything goes to the tright places, but I need to make sure I never have to shop at a plus size shop because those clothes are UGLY!).

    Well, I think your proportions look fine. You look like a woman with some curves and that's what I think is most attractive on women. Just my opinion.

    Aaaaand he said it again. "I think you have thyroid problems because your fat in an ugly way." Then I asked him what he wanted me to look like. He didn't explain it, he just threw a tantrum. So I have to eat even less? And I am already constantly starving!
