|This must be one of the hardest things to help anyone out with but I'm worried and someway someone has to get through to her. |
My 19 year daughter is gaining weight rapidly, I mean I saw her last weekend and 7 days later when I see her again it looked like she had put on a couple kilo's! It was that visible, when I bought it up to my bf he even agreed and said he had thought it may have only been him that noticed. She is roughly 165 lbs, 75 kilos and only 1.52 (5 ft)
I can't say anything, I'm slim built and maybe I'm part of the problem because I've looked after myself physically and always eaten well. I think my girls think it's all too easy for me but No it's not, I work hard at keeping fit and healthy as do most females. I've always supplied good healthy food at my table and taught them to eat healthily as well as indulge on occasion. The other two are fine but this one has the worst eating habits, preferring fried foods, bread with most meals and a very high carb diet. Now she and her partner are in their own place and cooking their own food (which I imagine is lacking in vegetables and mostly fried and cheap fatty meat) Her weight is escalating and so is his! Should I say something to him?
No one in both her dads and my family are obese. His mum is a large woman and mostly due to unnecessarily over eating as with the problem that my girl has.
What are the ways in which I can approach her. She has tried weight drugs from the doctors which had the reverse effect once the pills are stopped. She is mindful of her weight and has talked about the lemon detox and ordering in food diets which are very expensive and she really can't afford them. She refuses to go to weight watchers or Jenny Craig when I mentioned that to her once. She will talk about it but only if she brings it up, I can't approach the subject ( or rather should I say I haven't learnt how to approach the subject without offending her) so in saying that she is aware there is a problem but lacks the strength and commitment it takes to fix it!
Is there any way to get through to someone that they need to seriously look at their weight? Family members? Friends? Boss (whom she likes and respects a lot)?
