Sorry. I've deleted as don't want family to recognise and because the answers already received reinforce what I already know.

Nothing you can do, I'm afraid, beyond keeping walking with them.

You keep your mouth shut, that's what you do.

Their weight, their health, their business, not yours.

You can't do anything. People will only change when they want to.

Your intentions are good. Unfortunately I think you are going to get a bit of a slamming, by some people.

My experience is that you can't make people change if they don't want to. You may just have to wait until they seek you out. If you have a child the same age as theirs maybe he/she could join in with any after school activities you do but as far as the adults go any well meaning help/advice by you will be probably taken the wrong way

Sorry, all you can do is offer them healthy food when they visit and accompany them on more walks sad.gif .

It hurts to see people you like / live not taking care of themselves, but it's their choice sad.gif.

Not much you can do. I'd say they are probably aware that it's a problem (despite what they may say) and are not reay to change things.

You don't say anything.

Just because they don't acknowledge it to you, doesn't mean they don't acknowledge it.

Eta. What are they meant to say? Gee we are all fatties?

Why is it your place to say something?

Unless the are pretty stupid the walk probably gave them an indication things aren't right.
