How Can You Encourage Your Friends to Get Healthy?

I have decided to start a new feature on my blog, “Question of the Day.” Every so often, I am posed questions; I thought I would start to share these periodically with you before doing related follow-up posts.

I was emailed a question this week that I have heard many times; I would appreciate your input.

The email was from a reader who has a friend who has been struggling with living a healthy lifestyle for several years; as a result, the friend is severely overweight.  The reader wants to be supportive and a good friend to the other.

Therefore my questions of the day are:

How do you motivate/encourage your friends to get healthy in a supportive and respectful manner? If you are struggling with living a healthy lifestyle, what are some ways your friends can encourage you to live healthier?
