It's really difficult when your friends and co-workers don't take you seriously. I've found that I can have one small bite which usually makes everybody happy. But sometimes they'll try to get me to have more, and then I just tell them that I'm really serious about getting healthy.
It seems like people are trying to see how serious you really are, and they'll push you until they realize that you really MEAN what you're saying. I've been on SP for 3 months and it took quite a few times of me telling my friends that I was making a lifestyle change for them to stop pressuring me to eat bad stuff. Now they're all really proud of me because they can SEE that the changes I've made have made a difference in my body. Apparently, seeing is believing.
If all else fails, say "Thank you, but I really have to do this for me." And don't worry what they think.
You really do have to do this for YOU.
