My daughter who is 18 is probably in the obese category. I have asked her directly to take a look at SparkTeen but she refuses. What I realized is that the indirect approach seems to have more effect. I make sure to track when she is in the room. I measure my food and she notices because we are often in the kitchen together. Slowly I hope to show good habits, be available for questions and stoke that slow burning fire so that when she is ready she will have the tools and information available.
Teenagers seem to respond to this show me, don't tell me strategy
I plan everything for the week..when I will work out, what I will eat, and more importantly when I will most likely overindulge because of a celebration, a party etc. I exercise extra that day and eat a smaller lunch.
This strategy keeps me from feeling deprived, decreases my chances of getting derailed and allows me to still participate in social events I enjoy.
