How do you deal with friends who don’t support your healthy lifestyle?
“First, explain that your aim in progressing your health is to assist you in many ways, including making you a better friend. But you don’t want any obstacles in your life that will keep you from pursuing what’s best for you, and this includes people,” says Jen Widerstrom, celebrity trainer, life coach and US Shape advisory board member.
“It could be that those unsupportive friends are struggling with their own motivational issues and your success just highlights their struggles. If they’re on board with a happy, healthy you, keep ’em. If not, time to drop ’em.”
