The last thing you need when you’re losing weight is things that demotivate you.

It’s a struggle enough to deal with cravings, needles on scales hovering over the 9 rather than the 6 and the peaks and troughs of blood sugar levels.

That means steering away from certain types of people who can sabotage your weight loss journey without them even realizing it.

1. The Person Who Can’t Gain Weight

The Person Who Can’t Gain Weight

The most challenging person to avoid when you’re losing weight is the person who can’t seem to gain an ounce.

This person could be your best buddy, your sister, your teacher, whoever - but you secretly hold some resentment against them because staying slim seems so easy for them.2

What, do they have the metabolism of a 6 year old?

It doesn’t seem fair, especially since you are trying so hard.

Try not to be resentful because that only causes you more stress and interferes with your goals.

Simply avoid these people, because you may eat the same things as them but not get the same results.

2. People in the Tempting Food Business

People in the Tempting Food Business

Yes, we are talking about the chefs, bakers, chocolatiers, and anyone else in the business of making delicious, tempting food that you have a hard time resisting.

Overindulging in tempting, delicious food is what got you in this situation in the first place.

Until you learn to control your appetite and learn to avoid certain foods, you simply can’t hang around with them when they are engaged in their profession.

3. Friends and Family Members Who Express Their Love with Food

Friends and Family Members Who Express Their Love with Food

While their heart is usually in the right place and they don’t mean to intentionally sabotage your weight loss efforts, their form of love will increase your waistline, not reduce it.

We’re talking about the people who always have a fresh batch of cookies on the table, or are always having a barbecue.

Because their food is loaded with emotions as well as fattening ingredients, refusing their food is literally like refusing their love.

That’s a minefield you don’t want to cross with people who care about you, so try to avoid them if you can.2
