    Thank you so much for the words of encouragement and the ample science to support them, I had lost about 130 lbs about 3 years back and used to love running, sadly, I put all that weight back on and you bet it’s been hell even coming to terms with my new old body. I find that running is much harder now that it ever was before and my hips and ankles ache a bunch, lucky for me I found your website and the glimmer of hope to keep on trying. Honest, thank you! !

    Any suggestions on how to motivate an obese teen? Exercise at the public school system is now non-existent yet they have them do a “FitnessGram” every year which they’ve received no training for. My daughters are 16yo and 300# and food is a big issue, they eat a lot, comfort eating, watching TV eating. I try to give them tips on portion size, wise food choices, and increased activity, but also don’t want them to feel like I’m degrading them for their size.
