So, I met with my clients. It went well. We're doing no calorie counting. Digging further into things, I think it can all be solved by better focus on cooking, a tiny bit of portion control and more exercise. They're seemingly motivated for all of the above. Let's see in a week. Smile

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

Sorry, I didn't see your follow-up requests...

Sadly, Mom doesn't have her s**t together, stopped going and I haven't heard from them. They were doing great when I met them after a week. They had changed a bunch of things around, and the girl had lost several kilos.

Then we scheduled next meeting, and mom called to push it a day or two. Then called again, and again, and then nothing.

Either they're doing great or not at all, I suppose.

According to me for younger kids who still have a lot of growing to do, aim to maintain your child's weight rather than lose weight. Focus on vegetables and fruits.Eliminate sugared beverages such as soda, sports drinks, and fruit punch.

That's pretty much what I did. Smile

That's too bad King, Lets just hope you planted a seed towards better nutrition in the young girls mind and it will grow.

They had a pretty good idea what they needed to do. It just bothers me when a parent can't man up and follow through for their kids. :/

I saw this post last night. I thought to myself it is not likely to work for this girl unless Mom is onboard with it.
Stay strong, stay focused.

Mom WAS onboard. Mom was the one doing the work, not the daughter. Smile

Not sure where they are now, though. :/

Maybe money was a factor? I am sure it costs a lot to join a gym.Maybe they picked up a treadmill or some home equipment?
