Having friends and family is wonderful that is until you start doing something like, losing weight, dating or moving. I want to address the losing weight because that is what I do.
You may feel guilty about your weight loss or take a break from your diet altogether when you are with your friends and family. This is fine if you take the right precautions:
As well as watching the contents of your food.
You can still have a good time but it is important that you remain focused or else you will yoyo up and down with your weight. I know this will bring questions from your family but do your best to explain to them that this is not a diet but a way of life.
You are changing for you and no one else, your life is becoming more healthy and you are digging deep to keep up with your new life style.
I have these same types of conversations with my family and some have taken them to heart and slowly changed their lives while others will turn their backs on it because they are to "busy" or "lazy" both are very bad excuses. So don't confront them on these issues let them continue to come to you and then feed them a little at a time.
This way you will be more inclined to not get upset and also they will not be over whelmed with what may have taken you months to learn.
If they want to know they will ask you.
