Hi, I'm 20 years old and I live with my parents while going to school. Since I live with my parents I have no control over what my mom buys for our meals. We do have some "healthier" food, but there's still unhealthy like chips, canned foods, soda, etc. The thing is I can't not eat it. Whatever she cooks I eat, because I'm not going to sit there and say, "No, I'm not going to eat your food I'll make something else". That's rude and a waste of more food. Even when we do have healthier food I'd rather eat the junk food that we have. I can't stop myself. How do I get in control? I've tried asking her to only get healthy stuff but it either doesn't happen or it doesn't last long. I just don't have the will power to say no to the unhealthy food. I also don't have a job so I can't just get my own food just for me. What do I do? I'm 5'7 and 180 pounds I just went into the overweight scale a couple months ago when I checked my BMI. I don't want to get really heavy. I smoke cigarettes and go to the gym but because I smoke it's harder for me to stay more than an hour at the gym everyday if I even stay for an hour. I won't try diet plans like Jenny Craig because it's a waste of money when I could just do it myself if I had control. What do I do? I need help!!!!
