Let me guess all the people who are treating you bad haven't really lost any weight or are having a hard time meeting their goals.
Misery loves company - winners stand alone. Ignore them, if they are true friends they will come around - otherwise it's time to get new positive friends.
But nope. I've had awesome friends before I was fat, while I was fat, and after I was fat. The only person who was uncomfortable/mad was me towards myself.
oh yes.... my supposed "best friends" at the time were both overweight, like me. i lost the weight before high school, they didn't. they made mean jokes and told everyone that i only lost the weight because i starved myself, etc. (i didn't... i did it the healthy way). i suppose they were so hateful because they were jealous.
My older sister :| ... says I am just trying to show her up and was making up health problems for attention (yeah being 250lbs was all pretend/ slide of hand)
Several friends :\ ... don't know why
The only people who seem happy/supportive for me is my best friend and my doctor.
Try not to let it bother you I assume people like that are just having trouble coping with their own issues.
Oh yeah, all the time.
They mostly say 'You don't need to lose weight' When I'm over 200 pounds. I say I do and they argue. Finally I tell them, I'm losing for my health. And that shuts them up. They can't tell you not to be healthy, right?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
