Open dialogue : Express your concern about your health and your need of seeing a physician. Specify that your health concerns are in relation to your body weight and you feel professional help is needed. Your mother will feel relieve to know that you trust her enough and that you are asking for medical attention. Both are very positive signs. Good luck!
