  • Tell her you are just thinking about her health. Express that you are not trying to be mean.

  • I'd just mention a concern about her labored breathing. Even skinny people have trouble breathing sometimes. She does need to get it looked at.

  • Keep out of it. By now, she knows that she is overweight and it isn't healthy. Your pointing it out isn't going to be earth shattering news to her.

  • Why do you feel you need to bring it up to her? Believe it or not, I'm quite sure she' s aware of it herself & really doesn't need you to point it out to her as if she doesn't know it. Just be her friend & don't try to "fix" her.

  • try telling her abt her breathing

    Answer by san78 at 4:46 PM on Nov. 12, 2010

  • If you want to mention her breathing, go ahead. Do not mention that you feel it could be due to her weight. She knows she's fat, she doesn't need you to remind her of it.

  • Well has she said anything about loosing the weight? If so then help her out,ask her to go walking with you.If she hasn't said anything about it then I wouldn't say anything.Maybe just bring up the breathing
