I noticed a few other things as well. The more I posted my weight loss in MFP, the less and less people seemed to notice, "like" my status. The less encouragement I got, Which makes sense...I overloaded people with my stuff...it's like a social media overload.
So find your groove and own it. Ignore those nay sayers and let them have their soap box, just because they are up there, it doesn't mean you have to listen. Let them stand and talk to know one. Prove them wrong and focus on you and how you feel and how you have changed. The results will speak for themselves
Look in mirror and remember that the only one you have to beat, the only one you have to be better than, the only person you are doing this for is you. Don't be so hard on yourselves. You are leaps and bounds from the person you were not too long ago <3
