Members of Your Team – Friends

Friends – Friends will often either be for the surgery or against the surgery. Overweight friends may have mixed feelings about your weight loss. They may be happy for you, but your weight loss may make them feel worse about themselves. Preparing yourself for a wide range of responses to your weight loss may be the best thing you can do as the leader of your support group team. Be prepared to accept that friendships may flourish or may wither. Look for opportunities to develop new supportive friendships. Choose to surround yourself with those people who are positive and support your efforts to improve your health.
