    Her bf left her a few months ago because apparently he's married and now has a child. :ugh2: So of course she's super upset all the time, and just sitting arround and getting fatter.

    I'd like to get her into some cardio, she was educated in culinary arts and manages a restaurant, so she can eat well and healthy, as long as I get her away from the brei. She made a bad ass tuna nocoise salad llast night.

    She needs to lose about 35lb and she would be totally fucking smokin, I just don't know how to get her started putting some work in. I know she'd feel better, and dude's would go fucking crazy over her if she lost the spare tire.

    Any tips on getting her to get her ass in the gym?

    Invite her with you. Tell her what you said here. Other than that, you can't force someone to get into something if they don't want to.

    she's not a member, so she can't go. Besides, it would probably be intimidating to go into a gym chock full of increadibly fit people...my gym is very humbling.

    Start making fun of fat people around her and hopefully she will notice how she is getting fat and she will want to get to the gym.

    You don't need to get her a membership

    Start doing running with her at night, or get her involved in sports

    What is she interested in? I'm sure there is something she likes that involves a cardio workout

    Put a box of doughnuts in your car and when she gets in to get them, drive to the gym.

    Go for a walk with her. Go for a short one then make them a little longer till they are 20-30 minute walsk every nite. Ask her to go to the gym with you every time you go. If she knew that you thought she'd be smoking if she lost the weight I think she'd atleast seriously consider it.

    She pretty much just sits arround eating brei and drinking. I however started bitching at her to start cooking healthy food so I could eat it. She knew me when I was at 138 lb, and now sees me at 200+ but apparently my enthusiasm hasn't worn off on her. I'm not going to say anything to her I guess, but i would really like to see her get healthy.

    Go for walks with her or go for light runs. Rollerblades work too. Get her in the routine of heading outside and getting exercise, usually in the morning is better just to kick off the day. That usually will hit it off with her, and get her motivated to work harder. Then work in suggesting a gym membership.

    Tell her that you want to bring her out to an all you can eat buffet but instead take her to the gym.
