Q: How do you deal with friends who don't support your healthy lifestyle?
A: First, explain that your aim in progressing your health is to assist you in many ways, including making you a better friend. But you don’t want any obstacles in your life that keep you from pursuing what’s best for you, and this includes people. It could be that the unsupportive friends are struggling with their own motivation issues and your success just highlights their struggle. If they’re on board with a happy, healthy you, keep ’em. If not, it might be time to drop ’em.
