You thought your amazing weight loss success would bring you nothing but kudos. Now you’re shocked to be experiencing negative backlash from folks who don’t like what you’ve accomplished. I hear it all the time and I’ve experienced it myself. Stemming from genuine concern or bitter jealousy, sometimes it’s just extremely difficult for some people to cope with their overweight friends’ slimmer new body. I always find it ironic that once a formerly overweight friend starts to verge on the trim side … folks go in to a panic. “You’re too thin!” and “are you sick?” are two of my favorites. I’m not suggesting that on a rare occasion, weight loss isn’t taken too far. But I can assure you from decades of professional experience working with tens of thousands of people around the globe … it isn’t the norm.
