She does have you well trained. The only way to break the cycle is to ignore her. When she bothers you at night, roll over and don't even say 'go away' to her. Completely ignore her. It will be hard and it may take a couple weeks, but it's the only thing that works.
I would also give her a good play session with Da Bird or a laser pointer right before bed and a bedtime snack (split her allotted food into 3 meals).
For weight loss, I recommend a switch to wet food. Dry has too many carbs and cats don't have the digestive enzyme needed to process them so it turns to fat. Here's a good article on weight loss and the need for wet food:
