So for those who may have read my previous blogs about the teen I am helping to lose weight..well, she has lost weight. I believe 6 pounds. We are so proud of her. She says she spends her allowance on buying her own food cause her parents don't think she is committed to losing weight. My daughter has been her cheerleader and walking with her. It is so good. Unfortuantely, I can't take her to the gym with me. Her parents wont get her a membership. Today, she got an application to volunteer at the local YMCA just so she can use their facilities. She tells me of all the thing her parents say like they going to feed her crackers and water and grip about baking her food instead of frying it all the time. Her mom said she would not lose weight by going to the gym. The child has not be physical in such a long time that even if she still ate the same and got active some weight would come off. She texts me all the time and asks what to eat and how much. She is really motivated to do it. This makes me want to help other teens who are in her situation.
