I about 5'4" and 120 pounds. I used to be about 115-118 but now it is more 119-122. This might not sound like a big deal but those few pounds are really bothersome to me. However, my boyfriend says he still thinks I am too thin. He always says I need to eat more. When he used to say things like, "Jesus, I can feel your bones" he now says things like, "wow, your boobs have gotten bigger and it's amazing." This makes it seem like he is obviously more attracted to me now.
The thing is, I am not exactly comfortable with the weight I have put on and want to go back down to my lower weight. I feel slightly pressured by him (and others even) to maintain my current higher weight. It is so complicated. The problems come from the fact that I used to weigh at least 155 pounds and worked very hard to lose weight so now I feel a sense of failure when I weigh over 120. Maybe it sounds crazy but I can't help being controlled by that number on the scale.
How do I make my boyfriend understand that I am not happy with these few extra pounds?

If you are happy with how you look that is all that matters. Don't lose weight if you don't want to. Please yourself before you please him.0
