Default Motivation for our daughter

Hi everyone just looking for input and ideas on what to do. Both myself and my wife have been losing weight and living very healthy now for the last 6 months. I have dropped 65lbs and my wife has lost 50lbs. She has about 15 left to go and i still have 50 more to lose.

We would love for our 22 year old daughter to start in this too. She is living with her boyfriend and has a 1 year old daughter. She is easily 100lbs overweight.

She shows interest in it but only momentarily and finds excuses why she can't lose weight. Her boyfriend is skinny as can be and works at a high energy job so that is her main reasoning is that he needs lots of food day to day.

She is very happy for us though and she does always mention how she would like to lose .... just she is not ready to count calories... or she doesn't like any vegetables... she has all the reasons.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how we can help her get started on this journey?
