Sorry for this huge vent, but I really need to let it out on someone
So, over the past two months, I've lost over a stone- healthily. I do regular excercise, and as a veggie, I always eat more than my five a day, I eat when I'm hungry, and I have a fine calorie count for my height and age and all; I'm a lot happier, and a lot more confident with my new shape. However, the nasty effects have nothing to do with my body or health. But my "friends."
For the past year or two, two of my closest friends have always gone on about their weight; one is quite overweight, and the other relatively; they've both tried dieting, one ALOT, but it has never worked. Recently, one of my friends lost half a stone, but then broke their healthy eating and put it back on. Basically, for a while- since I've started losing weight- one has become snappy and distant with me, and today they both gang up against me in what's a typical girl way. I then find out that they've been... *female dog*-ing about me behind my back, saying that I'm too extreme and its obsessive and generally nasty things about my eating. It's really, really hurt my feelings. These are supposed to be my friends, so how can they be so malicious just because I CHOSE to act and stick with it when they DIDN'T.
I don't know how to act now, because it's not full blown and out in the open yet. Any advice?
