I've had a friend I grew up with. She is over weight now. I'm in pretty good shape myself. I ask her to go to the gym or go running but she always makes excuses that she will be working or does not have time. She works a desk job now so she really is going to just keep getting fatter. I've thought a lot lately about confronting her and saying "look, I worry about you and I really like you to go to the gym with me because you are going to have some serious health issues if you don't start getting back into shape" But saying this would be really hard. I mean, i'm sure some of you all can understand where I'm coming from. You don't want to come out and say it but the truth is the truth. Pretty soon it will be too late to turn around. She's about 24 now and before you know it she will be 30. Sure she could start losing weight at 30 but the years of high blood pressure and other weight problems could carry with her. Diabetes etc. So anybody had an experience with this?
