    If someone asks me how I lost weight, I tell them ("calorie counting with an app"). If they ask more questions, I answer them.

    Only this. No one really wants advice.

    They want to hear that you did something magic, and when you start talking about diet and exercise their eyes glaze over.

    I'm also no expert.

    Plus if they decide they DO want to follow your example, they sometimes invite themselves into your workout. (Let's be workout buddies!)
    Which they then do about 3 times before they start finding excuses.

    NOT UNLESS THEY ASK! If someone asks me my advice, I give it. Otherwise, my mouth is shut.
