Has she watched any freelee videos?
What does she say about them?
She says that its a cool idea but that the lifestyle isnt for her... :\ i know i just have to let it be but its hard to watch people I care about struggle with something that is easily fixable!
I hear you, Cloud. It's hard when we want health for our loved ones more than they do, but you've said your piece. There comes a time when it's best to back away, respecting their decisions to live as they choose, and respecting yourself to release them.
Just live this lifestyle yourself to the very best of your ability. Be the example! Rest assured, she'll be watching you.
Thats good advice!
your doing all you can. trying to teach her and show her without being pushy. thats all you can do.
You are a good sister and a good spokes person for our animal friends, keep up the good work, you will reach her eventually! :D Keep featuring beautiful vegan athletes on your FB. Join organic athlete in your area and invite her to join. https://www.facebook.com/organicathlete
You can beg her too or make a deal/trade/pay for her to try it. Next time she says your preaching say I'm not preaching I'm begging on behalf of the animals.
Also you might consider this motivation to start your own youtube channel, you can collect other inspiring videos and re-post them or do your own or both.
I think I will start a youtube channel, it's too easy to get lost and feel alone out there in the world, us vegans have to stick together!! :)
In my own experience, some people just have to really hit rock bottom and make the change on their own. i too have tried to preach to my family and my sister but they never listen and often tell me im "missing out"....lol and i think to myself yeaaaa missing out on feeling sick and being sick. so now i give up and just live and try to set an example. some people in their own time come when they are ready, some may never come. its sad but at the end of the day thats their choice and their loss if they cant even try it for a short time. its probably because the food makes them feel good in the moment. preaching helps some but for others it just pushes them away :(
yep, i heard a quote recently about the fleeting sensation of taste or the day long effects of eating the right food! food is fuel! im just getting sick of watching my family members struggle when i can help them!! but at the same time, only they can help themselves... oh well! in due time!
