Hard Task

by Jocelyn

I think the hardest task is to get someone to realise you want to help them with advice for their benefit. That you are not being critical or nasty. When they don't see things happening overnight they put it in the 'too hard basket'.

helping with weight loss

Hi Jocelyn,

Thanks for commenting.

I agree with you. It is certainly difficult sometimes to provide people with the help they need without appearing to be condescending or mean. However, if it is approached in the right way, most people are happy to receive support.

Here's some tips that I have found useful over the years:

1. They must want to lose weight in the first place!

Even if someone needs to lose weight, until they reach a point that they want to lose weight, any suggestion that they should lose weight will definitely come across in a negative light.

I think it is best for them to mention their desire to lose weight to you first before you bring it up with them.

2. Become actively involved in helping them.

This could be exercising together or both selecting healthy meal options when you spend time with them.

3. Provide them with information so they have a better understanding of the processes involved in losing weight.

So many people who try to lose weight look for short cuts to ty and speed up the process. Unfortunately, the fat-burning process is not something that can be sped up very much once you're doing everything correctly.

By simply making the process comfortable, i.e. not starving or exercising excessively, most people will happily maintain a lifestyle that is conducive to helping them eventually lose all the weight they want.

I hope this information helps Jocelyn.

Once again, thanks for your comments and I wish you success with your situation.
