Toe walking at 16

I am 16 years old and have been a toe walker since I started walking. My mother mentioned this to my ped. when I was 3, but he said it was nothing to be concerned with and that I would stop eventually. Obviously I haven't...I walk normally when wearing shoes, but walk on the front of my feet when barefoot. I have always done this, and can walk normally when I pay attention, but as soon as I stop thinking about it I go back up on my toes. This is embarrassing, and I've read that it can cause back and hip problems... my mother says it's nothing but a silly habit and won't take me to a doctor. How can I get rid of this?
