What is my sister’s issue with my weight?

My sister regularly throws shade to my body type, I’ve always been pretty tall and skinny and I’m even a little underweight. But it’s not like I look unhealthy. She on the other hand has been overweight for a few years and my brothers would make fun of her for it. Calling her fat and stuff when they’d argue. She has been trying to lose weight, while I’ve stated that even though I’m underweight I really don’t mind. The only reason why I’d actually try to gain weight is for track and field (muscle). The digs seem to be getting more regular and apparent, we’ll just be having a normal conversation and then she’ll change the conversation to my weight, when I never even bring either of our body types up. I think it’s due to her own insecurity since she does bring up the fact that she was made fun of a lot, but I’m not sure. What should I tell her, because she’ll make it a bigger issue then it has to be, and will bring it up when we argue to try and hurt me. With the media and her pointing my body out I can’t help but feel a bit insecure myself. What should I do?

    It's typical girl resentment. You look better

    Than she does. That ticks off lots of fat girls.

    Just try not to over react or make fun of her.

    Her weight is her problem to manage or take

    Care of. Ignore rude people and stay focused

    On managing your own life as best you can.

    Read prevention magazine and readers digest

    To fine tune your diet because too many people

    Don't get a balanced basic beneficial natural

    Food diet put together and eat stuff that only

    Puts on weight and causes health problems.

    As you fine tune your diet casually offer her

    Advice but if she doesn't want it just shrug it

    Off and walk away. Some people just blow

    Off good advice. Make a note you tried to

    Help her and leave it at that. It's up to her

    To put together the right diet and exercise

    Routine to get slim and stay healthy. So

    Don't let people dump their problems on

    You. You had nothing to do with her gaining

    Weight. Right? You had nothing to do with

    Her not being enough exercise. Right? Ok

    She caused her problem so back off and

    Let her fix it. You can politely offer help

    Once in a while to keep your conscience

    Clean. It helps you sleep better to help

    Others occasionally but only if they are

    Nice or receptive to that assistance. If

    They get angry or get too confrontational

    Simply back away and stop helping them.

    Only do what's in your long term best interest.

    Good luck.

    Don't take anything she says personal, apparently she needs professional help since your brothers have created this huge insecurity on her, she is trying to do what they do to her to you. So she needs help. Next time she brings it up, you tell her. "Hey, ______ you need help." "I'm here for you."
