Don’t go out of your weight to please anyone but yourself.~Author Unknown
You should never lose weight because someone else told you had to, unless that someone is your doctor. Even if you only have to lose 10 pounds. Weight loss is a personal choice that will impact you the most, not your friends. The truth is that some of your friendships won’t be able to make it through the transition to a thinner healthier you.
If the desire to lose weight isn’t yours, you won’t be able to lose weight. You will fail because you won’t give it your best shot. All our friends give us advice but we seldom use that advice, even if it’s great advice.
Your friends might care and be worried about your excess fat, but if you are happy being fat, it’s not their choice that matters. If your fat lifestyle suits you then going on a diet and exercising 3 times a week will seem like hell. You will lack the required motivation to successfully lose weight.
To lose weight you first have to become fed up with being fat. The more you start hating your fat lifestyle, with its all inconveniences, the more you will gain the required weight loss motivation to finally get rid of fat.
It is your life and you are responsible for your choices. You know what you want and what your dreams are. Anybody else can only speculate, and their guidance may fall on a deaf year if you aren’t interested in what they are telling you. It all starts with you and ends with you, remember that.
