Agreed keep pushing

Those people are haters mad because you are doing something about your situation and they are not

I hear the same comments about being too old or accept what is happening to you or even accept your genetics

Also I try not to be in the company of these type of people - if I share my goals with you and you continue to not support me or continue to sabatoge my efforts - the amount of time that I spend around you will be limited

I need positive supportive people in my camp

Exactly. Keep pushing. My mom told me maybe I was too old. When I started wearing my medals home after half marathons and marahons, she changed her tune. I always try to encourage her to keep pushing.

How do you handle people who try to sabotage your quest for better health/weight loss? More times than not, I'm seeing around SP those who ARE have problems with "friends" who offer fattening foods, bade them to accept what is happening (age), or some who let them know how "fat" he or she is getting. (This happened to me.) emoticon

Share what you do to deflect the negative. emoticon
