Okay so my mom is overweight. She probably needs to lose around 70 pounds to be in the healthy weight range for her height. I know she wants to lose it but she honestly has no motivation. I’ll see her look at herself in pictures and she’s so ashamed of her body and I just feel completely heartbroken.
SO, I need your help! What are some ways that I can help her realize that she CAN lose weight? How can I make it fun for her to be healthy with me? I need to give her an incentive. She has definitely been “trying” more than normal. And I put trying in quotations because it’s obviously doing nothing. She goes to the gym twice a week, which is more than she’s ever gone. EVER. Which is great, but she doesn’t watch what she eats at all! Someone please give me some advice!

- atffitnessjournal answered: perhaps just go grocery shopping with her & pick out healthy food, talk about how much you’re into healthy eating, and cook together?
- dulcettonesoflove answered: Offer to make meals for her? - at your own peril obviously, but it might help. Or offer to plan out a ‘menu’ with her?
- 2b-caliskinny answered: How about you both workout together? You can help her make healthy meals and encourage her to use apps like LoseIt that log her food intake.
