When the people you love and trust continue to put down your best efforts and say your lifestyle changes won't stick, it feels like a punch in the gut. Even if they say they're kidding around, this kind of negative talk can have serious repercussions on your ability to stay on track and sustain a healthy lifestyle.
How to handle: Be honest about the way you're feeling, and vocalize your worries to your inner circle. Once they know you're serious, good friends will do whatever they can to support your cause. If someone can't get a grip or says you're out of line, it might be time to give that relationship some space.
