I need some advice because I am feeling like I am between a rock and a hard place here and not quite sure what to do or how I should go about doing it.
In the title I put helping a friend, even though I am talking about my sister, just because I figured maybe others have been in this same situation with a friend or a relative too and might have some advice.
My sister is about my height and 260ish lbs. She has started losing weight and is blogging about it daily and doing really well. But I am worried that she might be pushing herself too hard and not being realistic.
The first week she lost 3lbs which is good and I think ok for the first few weeks. She then set her goal to lose 4lbs the next week and did. Then I talked to her about setting her goals to be realistic and that 1-2lbs is normal and she might lose alot at first but then it will slow down. she then made her next weeks goal 3lbs. she lost 6.5lbs. and her next weeks goal is 3lbs again.
She isn't counting her calories, just watching what she eats. and I think she is not eating enough from what she blogs.
Should I just MMYB? Let her do as she please and if she comes to me for advice give it? I said my peace once and now let her choose to follow it or not. Or should I kindof push it? and/or talk to my mom and SiL who lives with her to check on her more? Should I give her positive info, like links and articles acting like I am just sharing info and not nagging lol or just lead by example and hope she comes around?
I usually think people should just do what they want but this could be bad for her health and her happiness. She is very very depressed about her weight and this is the first real step she has taken to do it besides little diets for a week ya know. and if she starts off losing alot and then hits rock bottom with little or no weight loss or starts not hitting her goal I am afraid it will be bad for her
We said we would support each other, keep pushing each other and stay in touch through blogging to make sure we all were on track so I think my nagging is what she signed up for with that lmao but then again no one likes to be nagged
also she does not have insurance and just started a new job just part time so wont have it so she wont visit a dr either.
