Can we please do something about this myth that if you lose weight “their jaws will drop” or someone for some reason will be jealous of you for being thin? Stop worrying about what other people think, chances are their reactions aren’t going to be as amazing as the reaction you’ll get for yourself by looking back and seeing how far you’ve come. Healthy is its own reward.
Honestly, if someone is being a jagoff to you now, he’s not going to suddenly stop being a jagoff once you drop 20 lbs. Assholes are assholes, and they’ll keep being assholes. Don’t change yourself to prove something to someone who isn’t worthy of your time in the first place.
