    I think the comments about having something unhealthy or loosening up is maybe a number of causes. Jealousy, like someone said, they kind of don't want to say oh well done as they fear the other person may take that as a sign they need to lose weight.

    But for me personally. And I've been eating healthy and exercising every day for months. I've cut out sugar, most carbs (they are my downfall), all the crap so I'm not jealous..... but from talking to other people I think there is a bit of a backlash with the whole clean eating/paleo/I'm going to put a pic up of my clean meal every single day thing that has gone crazy the last few years. There has been such a rise in this obsessive, Orthorexic type lifestyle, Freelee the Banana Girl is a good example.

    I'm not saying anyone in this thread that has felt judged for being healthy fits this mold. I'm just speaking generally that a lot of people are sick of the fitness craze.

    I appreciate the insight, it honestly never occurred to me that my lifestyle journey might make others feel bad about theirs. It's made me wary about sharing now.
    No! That wasn't my intention. People need to own their feelings, I was just giving a perspective on why people can seem a bit negative about it. Frankly your IQS thing is what has given me a kick up the bum for reducing my intake of refined sugar. Today was day one and I managed just fine (mind you, I'm not going as full on as IQS).

    But I really want a fecking Tim Tam....

    I get that. But it honestly never occurred to me how others might perceive me talking about it, I have a fear of being seen as smug so it's good to be aware!

    I really really want a Coke!

    I don't think it's possible for anyone to ever perceive you as smug. I didn't intend to make you feel bad

    I don't feel bad, I just don't want others to feel bad. It's all good, honestly!

    Good for you! I found the first week the worst. I used to get that 3pm need a chocolate fix - made worse by an unsupportive work colleague who would notice the time and say "chocolate, chocolate, chocolate", look at me and laugh. But it got easier and easier as the weeks passed. Now I don't even enjoy it if I allow myself a square so there's no point having it.

    Reducing refined sugar does make you feel good and the kgs just fall off.

    I know this is quite off topic but thought I'd pop it here, I recently got this to help my DH with his weight loss program, it's an excellent book with lots of yummy but healthy dinners that are quite low carb as well. Kids have also been eating them quite happily! It's the new CSIRO book.

    I am a trained consultant in this programme through work and although I'm not a fan of meal replacement diets, I actually like this one. I love this cookbook too, my favourite recipe is the braised red cabbage.

    Yeah I know nothing about meal replacements but I just love the book! My kids love the middle eastern spiced shepherds pie
