Two years ago I started comfort eating after a stressful event. I guess you could say it was traumatic but I'm not one to stew over those kind of thing. So anyway, over the course of two years I steadily went up from 129lbs to exactly 190lbs, which I've sat on for the last half year, not losing any, not gaining any. I'm lucky in that I'm 5'6" (female) so the weight doesn't look as horrible as it could on me.
Right before Christmas I asked my mother to buy me some scales as a gift just to save me having to go out and buy them. Since then I've been steadily losing the weight at a rate of one pound a day, weighing myself naked every morning after I've been to the toilet. I've had two people tell me that it's not possible it's just water weight but I don't think they realize just how much cardio I'm doing and how little I'm eating...
My question to you is whether one pound a day is too much too fast? I used to have extremely good control over my weight when I was younger and have always been able to control how much I gain and lose so one pound a day isn't surprising for me, but that was when I was still a teenage and still had ridiculous youth metabolism.
I understand that I'll probably begin to plateau at around 140lbs and it'll get harder. Do you think that at the rate I'm going I'll end up with any loose skin? Do you have any advice for me concerning a big weight loss? I'm aiming to hit around 110lbs this time, I'll be happy with that.
Sorry for the tl;dr, I'm really ecstatic with the results so far.

Underage Amerifat here.
(I posted this a few days ago, but I'm doing it again as I figured there would be new people who could give me advice.)
Let me give you a little background here. Both of my parents are overweight (Pic related: It's what they look like). I, however, unlike them, have a decent sense of self respect, and am determined NOT to become like them.
So, I followed some rudimentary advice from /fit/, and sure enough, it worked. I'm much healthier now, and I look and feel better than ever.
Here's the problem: My family buys into the whole 'Fat acceptance' bullshit. (Every single person in my family either has heart disease or T2 Diabetes).
Now, they're all claiming I'm anorexic. Whenever my parents see me exercise or refuse a Big Mac, they go absolutely insane, and start making up medical 'studies' that claim having a BMI of anything under 25 makes you become predisposed to cancer or heart disease.
Ordinarily, this shouldn't be such a big deal. But here's the problem: I'm underage. They're claiming I'm anorexic, and threatening to institutionalize me simply because of the fact that I want to be healthy.
Tl;dr: How do I convince my parents that being fat is a bad thing?
