You have a few months maybe you guys could try walking together.  It could be a way for her to loose a little weight (if she wants to) and a time for you to bond.  That is what I am planning on doing with my mom who is self conscious.  Also, make sure that she gets a dress that she feels beautiful in.

Yea, maybe the two of you could go to an excercise class or even just walking in the park everyday.

Definately pick out a dress that she feel comfortable in and looks hott in!! lol That’s a tough situation. You’re doing a great job already by just being there for her even though its “your time in the spotlight” 🙂

Have you talked to your mom about it?  Maybe she has advice?

oh haha i’m sorry I missed the different state part. Does she or someone she know have the Wii fit? I heard that is fun and is great exercise without having to leave home.

i had some of the same issues with my little sister, but not with such big hysterics. still, i know how hard it is to love someone and yet they have a hard time with where they’re at in life. i checked in with my sister much more than usual so she knew that i cared about her, not her weight. she ended up working out to feel better at our wedding and she looked great. i don’t know that she even lost a ton of weight, but she felt good about herself because she knew that i cared about her, not about what she looked like in photos or against my other bridesmaids.

Maybe next time you call ask her about her Wii? What’s her fave game?  Maybe pretend you want to buy one and ask her questions about it? Maybe talking about it will get her to use it?
