I have lost about 15 more pounds since I saw my family in October (total of 50 since May).
My folks are 76 years old. My mom kept asking me what I could or could not have. My dad would frequently ask me what can I have from X place if we were going out. When around others my mom would offer what I couldn’t have (on my behalf, lol).
I took them to the movies and they were surprised when I said no to the popcorn. Afterwards, my mom asked what could I bring to a movie if I wanted a snack.
Expressions of support take many forms .
