Wow, good job for you working so hard to get the weight off! That’s great that you’re staying active and running so much. I’m sorry they’re not being supportive. It sounds like it probably is jealous. Try to not let it get to you; you should be very proud of what you’ve accomplished.

Congratulations and wow at your obviously healthy weight loss! It sounds like people are going through a combination of jealousy and trying to wrap their heads around how you made it work. Many people understand what it takes to lose a lot of weight, but a the same time many people can’t/won’t make it happen the way you have. If you don’t see your extended family often, they may also be shocked at the weight loss and feel concerned that it may have happened too quickly, especially if your stepmom has been sharing her ideas about it. All you can do is shake them off and remind yourself of your awesomeness and healthy journey! Have you talked to your DH about how his comments bring you down? If not, maybe he just doesn’t fully understand the effect of his words.

Wow, that weight loss is incredible and you are SO inspiring. Congrats on that and no matter what anyone says, I look up to you for that. WOW!

I am so sorry about what your family says, I’m not sure what you should tell them to get off your back.
