I'm pretty sure they are. my step dad is always making remarks, even though he says them a little jokingly i know he's serious too. and my moms always saying i dont eat enough, and trying to get me to eat more. It's really get on my nerves, and i dont know what to do the get them off my case. i get some food for dinner evrynight and feed most of it to the dog when they arent looking, but that alone isnt working. any suggestions?
