I can already guess the gist of most, if not all of the replies. But, the futility and angst of this as a mom bothers me. Our daughter has been invited to the wedding of her very good childhood friend. It will be in the Spring. It’s in a different state. We are invited as well. Our daughter has nooo cause and effect reasoning, although she is actually very bright. This friend means a LOT to her. This can’t be overstated. A lot. Periodically, it bothers our daughter that she is now obese. Rarely, but it happens. Usually, when she has to get dressed up and struggles to find nice clothing and/or to feel and/or look right. She is not very tall and pushing 300 pounds. Lately, finding pretty clothes is a little harder than previously. She lives near a WW place and I have offered to pay... but she is not interested. She eats horribly. Cheeseburgers, large fries, extra large regular cokes, ice cream etc. she has given up and almost happily calls herself “fat.” It is possible that by Spring, she will be much bigger. AND it’s VERY likely she will be HYSTERICAL when she decides to look for a nice dress for the wedding. When the friend got engaged I hinted that she might consider going on a diet and she got a little ticked. But this is a train wreck sure to happen. She will VERY likely go hysterical come Spring. I’m not joking, not exaggerating one bit. Any advice/ideas!?!? Thank you.
