..In a perfect world!! ... I hear you..I had a teeny tiny trainer some yrs ago who had her OWN issues for sure. In spite of the difficulty I was having getting my weight down, she would "complain" about how she had lost another few pounds..."with out trying..." and while that may have been an issue for her. We were not friends having coffee. ...it had NO PLACE in the conversation during the hour I was paying
her to help me
. Being overweight at that time...I did not have the internal strength to call her out...now..10 years later I'd love the chance! I finally quit working with her. She made me feel awful.
