Whatever your work and whatever its worth,
No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,
And scoff at your best endeavor.
For the target art has a broad expanse,
And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull’s-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.
- Ella Wheeler Wilcox
In other words, let the haters hate. You will find during this weight loss journey there will be a gang of those who you "thought" would support you, congratulate you for trying to live your best life, but may do the total opposite and secretly hoping you fail. "Testing" you by offering junk food, rolling their eyes when you mention your goals, you know who I'm talking about. Dust those haters off and remember we are doing this for ourselves and not to please others.
(Although, it wouldn't hurt if losing some of this weight increases my chance of finding a husband in the upcoming year.. I'm just saying. A sista about to hit 40) -I'm kidding.
