Any advice will be greatly appreciated. I have a friend who is morbidly obese. Not gonna post her height and weight, but she is well within the deadly range. She is a little younger than me and now has shoe inserts because her ankles are breaking down. I sat her down and had a very frank talk with her a few days ago and told her I will do anything I can to help. So far, here is what we have. I am meeting her at the grocery store tomorrow to help her choose better foods. I have also told her to call me any time she has trouble preparing something and I will talk her through it (she is NOT a good cook). She wants me to go for walks with her, but I live too far to do that....gas prices you know. She mentioned it wouldn't be quite so bad if she had an MP3 player....so I bought her one. I did encourage her to get some diet pills...the ones that help decrease mood swings, as I KNOW this is a major cause of her binge eating. She won't talk to a doctor about a weight loss plan....not sure why, she goes for everything else. So anyway, is there anything else I can do? I know I need to lose some weight myself, but hers is a serious and immediate danger. I really do want to help her.
