Making fundamental changes to the way you live your life is no easy task. Since it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a state, country and wide web to transform an adult. Decades or weeks of bad habits that feel and taste good are not going to be easy to break. Instead of presenting a false strong front, be honest about the struggles you’re experiencing. When they attempt to help keep you on the new path to health and fitness don’t make excuses or try to “fit in” by reverting to unhealthy habits. Take their correction as an expression of their love and concern for you to be healthy.
