Deciding and committing to being a healthier you can be quite exhilarating and frightening at the same time. What can be worse is if you don’t have supportive friends or family members that “get” why you are trying to lose weight.
You do not have to defend your decisions. If someone makes a comment, politely say “I will take that into consideration but for now this is what I am choosing to do to better my life” or something along those lines. If you DO have a supportive group of friends and/or family, cherish it. Sadly, not many people do. This is a key element to achieving your fitness goals. At Shape It Up (SIU), I incorporate not only personal support from me but also fellow peers which is why the SIU Inner Circle exists. This private group of SIU clients can speak freely and openly about struggles, challenges and successes in a supportive non-threatening environment. Wouldn’t you like to be able to share your thoughts with like-minded individuals?
