I feel like, every time I make a run at losing weight and bettering myself, I end up losing a bunch of friends in the process. I’d go out with people and it’s almost like they enabled my bad behavior. Eating too much, drinking too much, not doing any physical activity... And once I put my foot down, they start acting like I’m “abandoning the squad.” Or they’ll start acting all jealous and giving backhanded complements like “You look amazing! Your back fat isn’t nearly as noticeable...” It’s like they’re saying “How dare she better herself! How dare she try to raise her status from being the Fat friend...” How do you deal with pettiness in your friend circle? How do you keep yourself going once your motivation takes a hit?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
