justamouse Posted December 2, 2011 Share Posted December 2, 2011 This is going to be a food related discussion and there will be weight involved. Just say'n. I have a family member who visits often, and who is obese. She just left, and both Dd and I remarked today that we both gained 5 pounds. Dd also made the enlightening remark that this persons version of healthy, is our family's unhealthy. We both feel like carp now. It's not just T day weight gain, she comes up a week or to at a time, and this happens all the time. She is older, and can't make big changes. But it's really hard on me to cook something for her, and something for us while she is here. She also is extremely inactive as the pain in her joints has made it impossible to walk. So though we're homebodies, we do hike and think nothing of walking around town and that gets curtailed. If this were any other thing, I think I would be able to accommodate her preferences without it bothering me, but I can't function well when I feel like carp. Adn there's a domino effect from that. How can I make her comfortable here, yet not have our own well being tank while she's visiting? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
