Trying to talk to someone about their weight can be hit and miss, and it really depends on who you’re talking to. Some people are open about it, others will get angry if you try to talk about it. You shouldn’t really go about it by saying something like, “Hey, mom, you’re gaining some weight. Why don’t ya go lose that?” of course. But you know that.
Maybe you could suggest the two of you try and be a little more healthy together. Maybe that could be working out together, or maybe it could be grocery shopping together for healthy food. Whatever it is.
But don’t be pushy about it either. Quitting smoking is a lot to tackle and she deserves major props. One step at a time, right? :)
My friend Nikki is fantastically confident, or at least she does a super good job at faking it. She’s so intelligent and gorgeous and she doesn’t let anyone push her around. She’s also really ambitious and a hard worker. I would definitely kill to have all of those traits. Great role model.
Selfies, on selfies, on selfies. Capitalizing on a good hair day, though. Lookin’ pretty fab if I do say so myself.
It’s super scary, and it’s probably going to be a tough conversation, but you just need to be honest. Sit down with your parents one on one and just explain to them exactly what you’re feeling. They’ll probably respond better than you think they will.
Good luck, keep being brave, and I’m here for you no matter what :)
Seasonal drinks, winter clothes, and lots of time with family :)
