When you start a fat burning program, you definitely want to have as many people around you that are supportive of your weight loss goals. Unfortunately, this idealistic mindset is tough to achieve in real life. There are literally saboteurs everywhere, its human nature. Sometime people are jealous that you are doing something they can’t or don’t want to do.

Instead, try go where people celebrate you, your goals and will help encourage you.
Well, the reason why these people adopt such a response to your success is that they are afraid of losing something once the goal is attained. Human nature is at play here.

Sometimes your best friend is sabotaging your fat burning efforts, because they fear losing you to a new circle of friends once you get all the weight off.
