How to Motivate Someone to Lose Weight

It's a delicate undertaking trying to motivate a loved one or a friend to lose weight. If handled wrongly, or too aggressively, you will bring to the mind of the one you wish to motivate all the stereotyped views on overweight persons.

In some cases, all you need do is raise the issue of weight loss, and your loved one or friend would feel you think they are lazy, weak-minded, ugly, sluggish and dirty, and not fun to be with. It won't matter if these thoughts are the farthest from your mind.

Some overweight persons are motivated to lose weight by the fear that they would lose a loved one or friends if they don't lose weight. Others are motivated when their doctors tell them if they don't lose weight they will get a deadly disease, or die in 3 months or so. 

Still others are motivated to lose weight by learning what they would gain from doing so, in contrast to what they are losing carrying around everywhere they go excess weight that neither improves their health, nor brings them happiness.
