Despite what some people may say to your face, you may encounter that not everyone wants you to succeed in losing weight.
They will smile in your face and then mumble shit behind your back. Like, ‘she can’t lose weight! She’s been fat forever.’ Then they will wish you luck and treat you to a bag of chips and curry-sauce, with extra chips, because apparently, it’s best to share. But then they don’t eat much, instead, they encourage you to enjoy yourself, and why not? They say, ‘It’s your last unhealthy meal.’
Anyway, you devour the rest of the chips before they change their mind, you wash it down with water. Because water is healthy and it seems fitting to wash away the crap you’ve just eaten. Secretly, they’re hoping you fail, they don’t want you to better yourself, as they can’t be bothered to upgrade their health, but they wish to benefit from having good health.
I’ve come across these kinds of people on a few occasions, most of which claimed the title ‘friend.’
But really, they’re fake!
Anyone who sets you up to fail sprays you with false hope or you hear their true feelings about you, are not meant to be in your life.
Use haters as motivators!

If and when you hear such comments or recognise these behaviours, please don’t allow them to dissuade you from your goal! You can still achieve them, all of them!
I want you to be mindful that there are people like this out there and you’ll likely encounter them closer to home.
Tips to Continue Going the Distance?
- Stick your training plan to your fridge.
- Attach a copy of your weekly meal plan, to the fridge also.
- Always walk with a bottle of water, healthy snacks, and a mini diary.
- Don’t allow the haters to put you off from improving your health and wellbeing.
Go the distance and enjoy every moment!
Stay focused and stand tall in the face of adversity.
Live a healthy life.
