You Asked: I'm Too Skinny Now?!

You Asked: I'm Too Skinny Now?!

You're asking and I'm answering . . .

"Hey Fit! I've got a problem. I've really been working hard to lose some weight and my good friend recently sat me down to tell me she thinks I am too skinny now. I exercise four times a week and eat healthy... not starving myself or anything but just eating at home more and not Taco Bell and Wendy's. I just don't want everyone to think I'm just not eating now. I am not sure how to handle it."

That is frustrating. If you've been working your booty off, figuratively and literally, an unsupportive comment can be a real buzz kill. Unfortunately it's most likely that your unsupportive pal is jealous, but she could also be genuinely concerned if you've dropped weight rapidly. Despite her reasoning, as long as you've been doing everything the best and healthiest you could (i.e. working out and eating right, rather than starving yourself), don't let her bring you down — simply thank her for being concerned for you, remind her of all the hard work you've been doing, and explain how great you feel now. If she persists, invite her with you to the gym and a healthy lunch, so she can see exactly how hard you've been working.

Has this ever happened to anyone else? Please share your stories below, I'd love to hear how you dealt with the situation.
