    I think you’re better off without her in your life.  She sounds like a miserable, bitchy person.  She’s jealous that you’re thin, so has to criticize everything else about you.  

    Since she was also stupid enough to do what she did while driving, she shouldn’t be on the road if she can’t get better control of her emotions.

    It sounds like she does not want your advice at all and I’d be steering well clear of the topic. Even if she literally throws herself in front of you and begs for weight loss advice I’d go “Have you considered discussing this with your doctor?”.

    Yes, it might be a touchy issue for her but that doesn’t excuse her going off on you AND continuing the bitchiness in a text message. If I’d overreacted like that, you’d better believe I’d be on the phone to my friend apologising and saying “I value your advice, I was just having a shocking day” or something.

    It sounds like you do not like this girl anyways & the friendship is over.  Oh well, lesson learned.

    I would just never bring it up again. My 16-year-old niece is severly overweight. She has asked everyone for help in losing it and has said over and over that she wants to be healthy. However, everytime I see her she is eating junk, chinese food, doughnuts, etc. If anyone, including her mother, makes a comment about it she gets really emotional and down about herself. She has been bullied severely at school and as a result has gotten deeply depressed, so everyone is scared to mention the issue. She does go to a therapist, but she never commits herself to losing the weight.

    Its different because she is still a child, but I think that an overweight person has to really get to the point of being fully dedicated before they will ever lose anything. It doesn’t matter what you, her doctor, her family says. Until she fully commits herself to the goal it will just be a never ending cycle. That being said, I don’t think your friend has an excuse for behaving that way at all. Shes obviously stressed from the deprivation, but good grief!
