I'm trying. Genuinely spending time and energy and (frankly) money into healthier foods and working out and doing everything on my part to lose weight in a healthy manner.
And I'm excited. Coworkers are starting to notice and clothes are starting to loosen up after being a bit tight and I'm feeling good. So I'm not trying to get myself or anyone else down when I say this:
It's not enough anymore.
I have friends who are also heavy, who talk about loosing weight and wanting it for themselves. Who talk a good talk. I want these feelings I'm getting of glee and happiness for my friends and family.
How do you help? how do you motivate? How do you get someone to stop being lazy and get up and move around.....
I know that there are people in my life who have felt that same way about me. I know that I all of the sudden had a light switch flip and I got it for me. But that doesn't stop me from hurting for a best friend who claims to want this but continues on with no change.
