I have a good friend who really wants to lose weight. She tells me all the time how she needs to shed these pounds and wants to get in a routine. Well, I exercise quite a bit and run twice a day. I have tolasked her numerous times to start walking with me. I usually run but will walk if she came with me. Everytime I ask her, even in advance, she comes up with some excuse not to go. Her kids don't feel well, she doesn't feel well, she's shopping, they're having family time, she forgot....ect ect. Her husband has even said things about it. My child comes with me and plays at a nearby park halfway through for his fun time and me to cool off and it'd be fun for her child too. Should I just take a hint that she won't be joining me? Should I stop bugging her to go? I'm just trying to motivate her...Answer Question

Yes I wouldnt ask anymore, once she truly makes the decision for herself to go she will go, you can only help motivate somone who is already truly motivated themselves and made their mind up to actually do something about it. Sometimes if you keep asking it can turn them the other way.
