"I definitely agree with mutual exercising. The more she sees you working towards a goal, she'll be motivated to follow, if she really wants to change how she feels. What's the rest of her family like? Do they feel the same way as she…"

Her mum and grandma have both told her before that she 'needs to lose weight'. In particular her mum has previously called her 'fat' during a drunken argument.I often tell her she's beautiful etc (at least daily), because I think she is and I want her to…See More
