How do you deal with the well meaning sabotagers?
I'm starting to discover just how tiny I actually am under all the layers of fat, and still have quite a way to go before I reach my goal. However, because I've shrunk so many sizes I look like I've lost a lot more than I actually have I think, and are starting to get the "you don't need to lose anymore" comments. On the one hand, I'm perfectly fine with dealing with those from the people that don't really matter in my life, but I want to be prepared for the whole different kettle of fish when those comments start to come in from those who do matter. My mum has already commented that I can't be losing 6lb in less than a week as it's not healthy (I tried to explain the back into ketosis glycogen dumping but it didn't really do the trick), so I'm sure I'll be getting the other comments soon.
Has anyone faced this already - how did you deal with it? MYOB is ok on a certain level, but for loved ones it doesn't feel right. I've never shared my weight with anyone but are probably at the point where I would feel ok to do so - is this a good approach do you think - something along the lines of "well you may think that considering the difference in me after losing X stone that I don't need to go any further, but I'm actually X stone from having a healthy BMI so I think I have scope for losing X stone/lbs more" (with the X being whatever is relevant at the time of questioning!). I don't want to be rude, or seen to be defensive, cause ultimately it is my body, but it's one that needs careful phrasing with family and close friends I think?
