It's amazing that you overcame so much negativity from others to lose so much weight! Sounds as though you dropped some unhealthy pseudo-friendships along the way, too.
I once started a Weight Watchers plan, and on Day 1, my then live-in boyfriend decided to make cream sauce-based lasagna and taunt me with it all week. Well, I didn't touch the damn thing, not one bite. I stuck to my plan, lost 4 lbs the first week, and won that battle of wills. I lost 28 lbs in 4 months. He ended up admiring my accomplishments, losing some weight himself--and feeling really bad for being such a jerk!
It's unfortunate that people add more obstacles to the process, but what you don't let stop you makes you stronger. 1176 days ago
