When I set off on my goal to drop from 120kg (260lbs), one of the main things I had to deal with is constant comments from so called friends and family. Some of my favourites are..
✔You look ill, you've lost too much weight.
✔ You've always been big, why change now?
✔ Don't bother you'll never lose or keep the weight off.
All very inspiring because it all eventually spurred me on to eventuality get into the best shape of my life!
Never, ever allow anyone's view of what you're trying to achieve distract you from YOUR goals. Bottom line is, they're your fitness goals, not their's. It's your health, not their's end of!
If they persist, tell them very politely...
"Thanks for your comments, now how about you let me crack on and we'll see who's alive and healthy in 10 years time!" 🤣
