Not too long ago I received an email from a young lady expressing a mix of sadness and anger because one of her closest friends had suddenly become quite negative towards her since she lost a considerable amount of weight. The email was so profound that it inspired me to talk about this issue in my latest Fit 411 episode below, and if you’d like to read the email yourself, you can check it out here.

All the above stated, weight loss can have a funny effect on the people in our lives. Friends might become frenemies, while total strangers may soon become our biggest supporters. I know it sounds crazy, but just anticipate it because 9 times out of 10 it will happen! And to better understand why it happens and how you should handle any negative fallout, check out my latest FIT 411 episode.

Hope you guys enjoy today’s video, and if you’re currently on a weight loss journey, I wish you all the best, much happiness, and continued success!
Peace, Love & Healthy Living,
