Losing Weight When Everyone Around Me Eats Unhealthy

March 7, 2012

“I’ve had a problem with my weight my whole life. It started when I was little, and my mom (who is also overweight) gave me foods that were high in fat. When I got older and went to college, all they served was unhealthy stuff – pizza, burgers, etc. Now I’m married, and my husband only wants to eat rich, heavy foods. I really want to lose weight, but it’s hard to do that when everyone around me is unhealthy too. What should I do?”
