To tell the people around you, or not to tell

What are everybody's thoughts on telling people about your changing eating habits?

There are pros and cons for both, so how have you found which side you have chosen?

My mum is going through a few changes in her life (aka. menopause - what fun!) and with that she's started worrying about her weight for the first time ever (she doesn't have a weight problem) and is trying to be as tactful as possible about suggesting different foods I could eat that would be good.

I hurt my back a few weeks ago and it was terrible. I really feel for people that have chronic back pain. It would take 10mins just to get out of bed (and loads of frustration and swear words) and although not one person mentioned it, not even the osteo or Dr, I know that having a large tummy really contributes to back weakness. I'm using it as motivation to just make a change and be happy about it.
