How can I encourage my......{insert person here}

This is something I've been asked a fair bit lately.

"I'm concerned about my mother/brother/sister. (you get the picture)
How can I get them to lose weight like you?"

Plain and simple.

You can't.

It's sad, but true.

I resisted help every step of the way. I ignored it. I pretended I wasn't overweight.
If ANYONE had mentioned losing weight to me I would have been mortified. And shattered.

My doctor told me to lose weight from time to time. I didn't listen. I didn't care.

It was a decision that I had to come to on my own. You have to want it with every piece of you.
No one else can do it for you.

The best advice I could give you as an onlooker......don't be an enabler.
