how can you help your friends live healthier without being a nag?

I was thinking the other day of my friends from college and the ones that i still see regularly have all put on quite a bit of weight. Some are downright obese. needless to say they are not living a very healthy life style. My husband and I are smaller people but we also work to maintain that and try to keep the junk food in the house to a minimum. I would like to see my friends live healthier lives. Obesity is not someone else's problem...it is everyone's problem. Health care prices are going to continue to climb as people live less healthy lifestyles.

I know how you feel. I don't have any obese friends, but I do have some overweight friends that are always complaining about their weights, but don't do anything to change the situation. I don't like to say anything too, because they can take to a bad way. I guess that the best way that we can help them, is inviting them to do healthy things, like invite them to walk, to lunch in a health restaurant, to go the pool or to try a new class of yoga.
