Whether it’s snarky comments about your commitment to healthy eating, doubtful looks from friends and family who don’t believe you can stick with it, or the food pusher who just won’t leave you alone, most people who’ve started their health and fitness journey have experienced one or more of those scenarios.
And these events can be absolutely detrimental to one’s commitment if we’re not careful.
The reason I’m sharing this with you today is because I want you to be prepared when these things start showing up.
Expecting the unexpected is one of the best ways to navigate situations like this.
So why would friends and loved ones be seemingly interested in sabotaging your health and success?
Well, simply put – it really has nothing to do with you.
It’s their own insecurities coming out and being projected on you.
Or it may even be their fear coming out around what it means for their relationship with you if you change.
It could even be plain jealousy.
Whatever the case may be, be prepared and know that it truly has nothing to do with you.
You don’t have to take the food from the food pusher. “No, I’m good” is a perfectly acceptable response.
You don’t have to fall to judgmental eyes out of fear of rejection/isolation.
You’re getting healthy for YOU and everyone in your life benefits from that – remember this if things ever get super tough in this department.
I hope this helps. Or, if there’s someone else in your life who needs to hear this, please feel free to forward this message on.
Here’s to wrapping up 2019 as your healthiest YOU.
