A Friend in need, advice is needed!


Saturday, January 08, 2011


Lori and I are asking for some advice on how to deal with a friend that knows he needs to lose weight but.... keeps losing the motivation to do so.

    I think all you can do is what you are doing. Let him know he is always welcome. If you bug him too much, he will be offended or rebel. He probably knows he needs to lose weight but like all of us, we don't want to do the work....because it's work! Losing weight is hard man!! Be the example. Lose weight and talk about how great you feel. I know you've heard this ..but you didn't gain it overnight, so you won't lose it overnight. I think 80% of weight loss is what you eat. Hang in there! You guys are great to care about other so much. :-)

    All you can do is continue to encourage him. If he isn't ready then there isn't much chance he will stick to it. You can't give up though, keep encouraging him. You never know when the time will be right and he will stick to it. I am going through the same thing with my husband but that is a little easier to "help" by deciding what we have for dinner.

Good Luck!
