Make it clear in no uncertain terms that you're already trying and on your own fitness plan that suits your personal goals and pace. Your MIL can give guidance but can't expect you to overexert yourself to the point it becomes dangerous for you due to your medical condition.

Hopefully she will listen and understand.

Don't equate your situation with OP's, it's a narcissistic and ableist assumption. Not everyone's circumstances are the same, and we don't know what's going on with OP.

As a male, i was 240lbs at 5’10” in highschool. Took 6 years of cutting out sugar and carbs to lose weight down to 130lbs. I looked good. Then I got injured at 27, got health issues and gained back weight. Due to steroids im now 204lbs. But i’ll drop it. Yes, cutting sugar and carbs is key. Its the only thing I did to lose weight. My wife has PCOS and is having a hard time doing this as well, but i’m going to try as hard as I can to help her with her goes. Hopefully ill be off steroids and won’t be messed up this bad for too much longer.

“Trying” was not defined by op. And readers don’t have to assume MIL is being a jerk. She cares enough to make it an issue and she’s probably right.
