Hope, while I am not a parent I can remember my parents forcing me to go to Weight Watchers. It didn't work and I would stop at the variety store and buy a bag of chips out of spite (yeah, I know!). She has to want to do it for herself.
Mern, I hear ya on being discouraged. I wish I had a follow-up appointment sooner with dietician at Diabetes Centre. Although they aren't any help in developing a meal plan that is low protein! If I try to eat too low carb I'm hungry in between meals.
