She is trying to lose some weight too (dabbles with low-carb stuff). She said that after meals is tough because she usually smoked after eating, so she makes an effort to stop eating a bit earlier now. That should help mitigate any weight-gain as a result of quitting. I think she will be more inclined to be active as her breathing gets easier. I still need to help her pick out the right tubes for her bike tires, but I will be in the basement soon to move things around anyway so I'll write that down for her.
Does my sister-in-law's husband = my brother-in-law? Anyway, I'll be over later this week to get MIL's help with talking to him so I can move furniture the weekend of the 24th. I'll be sure to check in with her progress and do my best to be encouraging. I'd send her stuff on primal/paleo diets, but I don't think I could manage it without being pushy. She's been losing slowly, but there's no real harm in that.
