This is a pretty serious issue for me, and I thought people here might have had some experience in it.
Ok, I'm 18 years old, and I've been with my girlfriend for close to 3 years. I was crazy about her for 2 years prior to that as well.
But in the past 3 years she's gained 50 - 60 pounds (that's coming from a minimum while she was bullemic). It's definately good that she doesn't throw up her food any more, but she's starting to not look like the girl I fell in love with.
She lives in another town now, so I only see her every two weeks, and I can't help but be dissapointed when I see her because she doesn't look the way I still see her in my mind.
She always complains that she's fat and thinks she's ugly now and I try to be diplomatic about it. She's tried diets but always gives up after a week or two. I always suggest to her that she needs to do cardio AND diet to lose weight, but it just doesn't sink in, or she ignores it.
How can I convince her to join a gym? Or if she doesn't want to do it is it a lost cause?
If I do convince her, what would be a good routine to start off with? She says she can't jog because it hurts her ankles, and there is no pool in her town.
Sorry for the length,
but I'd appreciate any advice.
