Confession and also maybe asking for advice?

Basically, I have some issues with food and body image. I'm a competitive athlete and so expected to be thin, and I notice people's reactions to my slightly chubby frame (though I'm not actually overweight) - in particular comments and telling looks come from my mum and from some coaches. I hit a low last spring, when I had awful binges (to avoid misunderstandings: Binges as in Binge Eating Disorder are not connected to enjoyment or love of food or gluttony or anything of the sort. I don't even taste the food, there's just numbness and a feeling of being unable to stop, eating until I feel sick and have severe stomach aches in a fit of self hatred) a few times a week and was starving myself the rest of the time. I've come a long way since then, really making an effort to immerse myself in body acceptance and self love and remove myself from bad influences, and I feel better. I still haven't quite been able to convince myself that I'd not be prettier/better/more worth as a person if I'd lose weight, but I hope to get there at some point.

However, my mother is being really unhelpful regarding this. Almost a year ago I worked up the courage to talk to her about it - we don't normally talk about personal things, so it was difficult - and told her it's harmful to me when she makes comments about my body and what I eat or even about other people's bodies and what they eat, since really anything that makes me focus on body shapes and see them as something important/rank some as better than others put my head right back in a bad place. She said she only wanted me to be happy and that she'd make an effort to stop, but...she really hasn't. Even when I've reminded her a few times after that, it only stops for maybe a day before she continues like before.

Since I live abroad I mostly don't have to deal with it, but when I'm with her, as I am right now at a competition, I really feel how it's damaging to me. It's things like "You don't have to eat much even though we paid for the buffet breakfast", "well, at least -I- only had one slice of bread!" (I'd accidentally taken two since they were thin and stuck together), "those two girls are so skinny", "that girl's gotten bigger since the last competition", "Are you eating again? We just had a meal two hours ago!", "Are you sure you're going to eat that? Is it good for you?", "You can't tell me you want to stop eating sugar and then eat chocolate in front of me! You have to eat it in secret in that case". I know she probably doesn't mean anything with it, I understand that it can be hard to understand that such comments can be triggering when you've never had any eating issues yourself, but I've only been around her for three hours now and I already feel sick to my stomach and feel some old binging urges coming up.

I guess I should talk to her about it yet again, and try to make her really listen and understand why it's bad for me, but just the thought of talking about it with her is really uncomfortable to me (and I'm afraid I'd cry, which I really don't want to do, especially not in public). If anybody has tips on how to deal with situations like this one, advice would be much appreciated.

TL;DR: I struggle with disordered eating. My mother keeps commenting on bodies and food and it's triggering to me. I talked to her about it a while ago and asked her to stop, but she didn't. I wonder how to make her stop.

You can't makeher stop. You can only try to ignore her harmful comments. If you can, try asking her why she just made the comment as soon as she makes it. Ask her what she wants to accomplish by saying those things. If she can be helped to think a bit before she says something, that may get her to stop or tone down the commentary.
But if it doesn't, you can only tell yourself that she is your mom, and that she loves you, and that she doesn't understand the problem. And then tune out what she says. You know it's not true, and that she means well. Remember that you don't spend that much time with her.
Come up with a short response along the lines of "my body is fine, I'm pretty happy with it." And repeat ad infinitum when she says something irritating.
I'm 52 and sometimes have to remind my mom that she doesn't get to police what I eat. It's a mom thing, apparently.

It had been 6 months since I smoked. For various and sundry reasons, Sunday was very stressful, so I went to the gas station and bought a cigarillo. Well, I meant to buy one, but the smallest pack they had was a two-pack. So I bought two, smoked one, and the next day broke up the second one in several pieces and put it in the trash. Now I really, really, really want one and almost wish I hadn't done that.

I know that feel, ouch. Complete abstinence is the only way I can manage it, otherwise "just the one" becomes "just a ten pack of Benson's gold" by the time I've walked the 130 meters from my front door to the shop. Then a week later I'm struggling to breath walking up the incline leading up to my house I had no problem cycling up last week.

Birthday could have been had?

But yeah if not waaaay to go posting that on the public parts of the internet, yo.
Edit: Also, bro, assuming she just had a birthday and y'all were previously not boning she was probably not all that experienced, no fucking wonder she sucks in bed. Communication is big...give her a break for a bit, yeah?
EDIT THE SECOND: it's possible they didn't bone in the classical sense and were just messing around.

It's also possible this is a different girlfriend. I certainly believe I recall Tom saying something along those lines.

Who said anything about poly? Just different. As in the was-girlfriend could be an ex-girlfriend and the different-girlfriend the now-girlfriend.
