> Is the projection, that I feel uncomfortable with my own body and I identify with that through my daughter's current weight gain?

I think that's identification with your daughter regarding the weight. I think that seeing her go through it may bring up your own feelings about weight and body image, perhaps. And it sounds painful. :( It also sounds normal, not like the actions of a more primitive ego system. (How's that for jargon?) ;)

From what you describe, it doesn't sound like either you or your daughter are "projecting" an intolerable negative part of the self *into* the other.
