Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
~ Dr. Seuss
Although weight loss doesn’t have to be a painful process, there are usually what I like to call ’emotional startup costs’ as you find your feet. It’s expected. We embrace it. Hooray for positive change!
Unfortunately, these costs are often accompanied by something far more damaging and insidious. Surprisingly, the source of this negativity is your friends and family – the people who are supposed to love you, house you, feed you, cuddle you when you have nightmares, hold back your hair when you’ve had one too many tequilas, drive the getaway car if you should decide to rob a bank, and so on.
