jenn...my MIL is the same way. Don't waste your breath or time...as harsh as that sounds. They have to be in the right place & the right frame of mind to accept things. If she doesn't read how'd she know to go with only protein & no fat & no carbs? She won't last long doing that & will likely damage her health. You can only do so much! You will thrive on your new lifestyle change...will be healthy & happy & skinny. You will be a walking testimonial for the way you have chosen to eat. She may still not come around to your "way of thinking", ever. My MIL hasn't & probably won't ever. Its just "too hard" for her to think about. Whatever. Be fat, depressed & in pain all the time. I'll just dance circles around you.
You can't save the world...altho sometimes we want to try. You can only concentrate on you right now!!
you're doing so great...we're proud of you!!!
