Sad story but this girl is as much to blame as her mum, or her PT, or her gym, or her fat camp. From her fb messages she seems to blame everyone around her but herself. With that sort of attitude she will continue to be imprisoned. She needs to to face up to the fact that she needs to help herself first above anyone else. I don't see it happening though.
Knowing the area quite well, as i live in the next valley over what is a pretty nice mountain road
, and googled the approximate are where her house appears to be, its not even a 1mile walk to the gym, let alone to the bottom of the hill as she complains about! If she were driven there then its still only a 1.4mile trip!
Working in the leisure industry i see people like her all the time unfortunately, tho granted not quite as overweight as she is!
To answer Halb – she is the only one
to blame for gaining the weight again since she lost it at the USA boot camp. She’s 19 ffs and perfectly capable of saying no to her mums junk food cooking.
With regards to you saying there’s blame on her Gym & PT, they can only do as much as she is willing. Being a PT myself I know when a client isn’t pushing themselves or has given up, and no amount of pleading/persuading them will change them to work harder, it’s usually at that point that I cut my losses with them and take on more clients willing to stick at it.
Unfortunately were in a society where its easier to give up after ‘trying’, she started a set meal, cooked for her, diet plan and gave up after doing it for under a month. Willpower is the greatest aid to losing weight and getting fitter, if you have little of it you cant expect to get much overall!
She clearly lacks it, and yes her parents are not helping by all accounts, but it was reported on the radio today that the very first meal she had after returning from the fat camp was a McDonalds and fish and bloody chips later in the evening! Why did she eat them? “because all mum had in the house when i was hungry was frozen fish, so she fried me some chips to go with it”. That’s bad parenting right there for a start, knowing your daughter has just lost so much weight wouldn’t you have at least some fruit and veg in the house so she could snack on that if she got a little peckish!?
But at the same time she could have said no to having it and chosen to get something healthier, there’s a 24hr tesco under a mile away ffs!!
