Unsolicited Advice

Chances are as you begin your journey there will be many people in your life cheering you on.  There will also be people who will provide you with “unsolicited advice”. You know the ones who tell you that you can’t do something because you’re overweight. Others that assume you don’t know anything about exercise because you have put on a few extra pounds.  They sneak up on you, zap your confidence and sometimes make you doubt your plan. The funny thing is most of these people probably need to drop a few pounds .
Just call these people  “HATERS”!!!
I have had a few of those people in my life and I have gotten rid of them .  At first, they make you angry and you push on for a while.  After a while you start repeating their exact words in self defeat.  These people are roadblocks to your success and you  know who they are.  This is not the first time they have deterred you from progress.  But you will need to acknowledge who they are  and tell them you don’t need their advice or  comments.  
The best thing you can do is to become informed about your body.  Get online or go the library and learn  about nutrition. It is important that you get to the doctor so you know what you need to work on. Schedule yourself a physical and request that  they do  blood work.  This way you can get a complete picture of your health.  You have to do the research to invest in your health, that is the best way to show commitment.
