Let it go and lead by example. If you lose weight and gain health over months and slowly take on a whole new lust for life, believe me, she'll notice. My friends started coming to me. Just realize that you can't save everyone and most people are just not going to care at all, but if you try and force it, everyone will turn off their ears.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
