Would you mind telling us the other half of the story because you only alluded to it here. Besides insulting her and adding to her issues by thinking you somehow control what she eats and she needs you to tell her to go running, what other offensive things do you say to her and then blame her by calling her stubborn. Just in that one sentence, you accidentally reveal you have been mean/unkind/offensive, if not all out abusive. So, tell us the rest of the ways you contributed or made it worse like you began to tell us here. Tell us the rest of your part and finish that paragraph.
