When people try to sabotage your weight loss, it often acts like holding up a mirror to their own lifestyle choices or insecurities. It’s not that they don’t love you, but seeing you make positive changes can trigger their own self-reflection, sometimes uncomfortably so. Practice empathy towards them, understanding that their reactions are more about their internal struggles than about you. Simultaneously, use this as an opportunity to boost your motivation. Reconnect with your “big why” — the deep, personal reasons you started on this journey. Let this understanding and your goals reinforce your resolve, helping you navigate these challenges with grace and determination.
