I've gotten to the point where I don't talk about weightloss with people unless I know they're supportive. So if people are sitting around talking about diet and I mention something that works for me or that I like, I have gotten the "you don't need to lose weight!" or "What are you, a size 2?" (No, thank you, I was a 10 at the time that was said. And I was not in the healthy range for my BMI thankyouverymuch. And more importantly, I knew I could be stronger and more energetic if I lost weight and gained muscle.) Sorry, I got distracted. :) Anyway, the only response is to just not talk about weight at all and say something like, "Yeah, but that's what I like to eat when I'm feeling healthy." Nothing about weight - more focus on "This is what I do to feel my best."
Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.
