Carol, that is very sound advice. I have never had that happen to me either...but I have been the one getting called the names--beached whale, fat a**, you get the idea. And then after I lost weight,all of a sudden, they knew my "real" name and were nice. Well, I agree with you that we have to move on with our lives and pay no attention to others. In my personal opinion, if they don't have time for you, to be your friend, to support you, to encourage you, then they weren't truly your friend to begin with and you really don't need them now. Hope everyone has a GREAT week!!! B
Personally, I have never had that problem, but guess I do feel that if I could lose 50 lbs. after 60+ years of unsuccessful "dieting", I have the feeling that anybody can lose weight. It is so hard not speaking to strangers who are so overweight and telling them about Spark People. I am far from thin, but am healthy and active for my age. Go ahead and live your life, paying no attention to others.
I would like to know how many that have or had friends who were overweight and how they treat you now they seem to forget how hard it was and now they can wear or do what they want they look at very differently and they no longer have the time or they just pretend they care just want to know why?
