Sammy, I could kind of relate to you AGAIN, lol
. My mother and father used to drink and smoke, and my father DID die at the age of 46 of a drug overdose but he was into it very heavily. But he REALLY didn't take care of his health and used MANY drugs. I think that is why I'm so health conscious now, but not when I was younger
Now, I worry about my mother because she is overweight, and doesn't really care about her food choices, like when we go out to eat she gets full fat ranch, and a fried chicken salad, then a DESSERT! And she always complains how fat she is.
I try to encourage her to make wiser choices, and give her little hints, but it doesn't work and it is SOOOOO frustrating. Do you ever try to encourage them? I know it's hard because many people are so set in their own ways.
