Watching a train wreck
Monday, October 24, 2016
Its so hard when you watch someone purposely do something they think is good for them, but you KNOW it's unhealthy and going to come back and bite them in the tush!
I've been watching a friend lose weight rapidly. Like 15lbs in 2 weeks kind of rapid. I also know she's starving herself because her roommate told me what she eats every day AND she's a frequent poster on FB letting everyone know she won't eat because she thinks she'll get fat. UGH.
I, along with many friends and family, have been telling her she's hurting herself by doing this. Yet, that all goes in one ear and out the other. I'm sure hoping she starts to realize soon that she can eat and exercise and still lose weight.
The other part is I'm the friend who always pays her compliments on how good she looks, but its hard to even do this when I know it'll just encourage her to keep starving herself.
The only thing I feel like I can do now is sit back and watch the train wreck. I sure hope she recovers.
