If you insist… The first time I read the phrase "calling pot kettle black," I knew it was a reference to the expression "the pot calling the kettle black." But for some reason, when it was written, it came out as word salad with the two nouns after the verb and before the adjective.
No matter how inappropriate that intervention was organized, the fact that they did this should be enough to take a critical look at your weight. You might be overweight and this is not healthy.
There's also not a one size fits all approach to health. One of my coworkers is a couple inches shorter than I am and at least fifteen pounds heavier. I still wouldn't challenge her to a foot race because she'd win. She runs marathons, I don't. Good health is less about the numbers on the scale and more about habits and practices.
While I agree that what they did was rude and wrong, what they were doing doesn't mean the family is fat. I'm pretty skinny and I can eat a good bit. I have a fast metabolism so I'm always hungry. Eating a lot doesn't always equal overweight. If you can, talk to a doctor first. See if the doctor thinks you need to lose weight and if so, how much? Maybe he could help tell you safe ways to lose it and keep it off. It's up to you if you want to lose weight, not your family.
I'm the same. But you see..skinny doesn't mean healthy and heavier doesn't mean unhealthy. I'll be the first to admit I'm unhealthy. It doesn't matter if you look it or not. I doubt the buffet was healthy food, which makes it hypocritical to try to tell op they are not healthy. However talking to the doctor is the best action.
That was the point. Even while stuffing their faces at a buffet, your weight is out of control compared to theirs. Their method is disturbing, but I'll bet it's effective.
