I remember a time when I hired a personal trainer. I came down from a size 20 to a 14, with a size 10 being my goal. It took everything that I had emotionally to do this for myself, and for the new career I was hoping to gain after my masters studies, but when a really fit friend/associate saw me ( not be as fit compared to their condition) I was made fun of. It was devastating to me. I felt as though all my hard work with diet and sweating it out just wasn't good enough for this very arrogant person.
Be helpful, not critical, keep happiness, personal pride, and appreciation going. Invest in a year of healthy emotional and physical changes with her and she should be happy to walk that journey out with you.
I know that if my colleague had come along side and lead me, it would have been so much fun!
She needs to hear how you enjoy physical beauty too. You simply like it/enjoy it and need it.View Thread
