RIGHT TO WORRY: Morbidlyobese adds problems to life and predisposes to many unnecessary illnesses after time. It isnt just diet; usually there are difficulties in living in other areas. Encourage her to talk with her dr. Go with her to support her.
You can't fix her problems, but you can help her do it if she'll let you.
