People making me feel terrible.

I am 20 years old and i started this healthy lifestyle, now two girls are following me and they are buying all these special drinks and stuff and they are acting like i dont know what i am doing. I work out eat lean meats vegtiables and healthy fruits. I dont buy anything special. As in special drinks or whatever. Ive lost six pounds so far. Do you think i need to buy all the special stuff.

    Nope. What you're doing is great, and it's working! Keep up the good work :-)

    I'd be more concerned you have two strangers following you around.

    What you are doing is working. So keep going. Forget what everyone else is doing and focus on you. Good luck and well done so far.

    I'm assuming "following" means via some social media platform

    You have to do what works for you. You also have to do what you can maintain. This is a journey you will be on for a while and you will have to continue into maintenance. The weight loss industry is a huge business but you really just have to eat healthy and track it, drink water, move your body. No fancy drinks, pills, concoctions needed.

    Jealousy and sabotage has no place in your life. I lived it. Keep doing you. Soon they will be asking you how you do it.

    Kids these days! :neutral: I feel like telling someone to get off my lawn.

    In all seriousness, OP, sounds like you're on the right track. At the end of the day all the expensive stuff gives you is expensive waste and a smaller bank account.

    Let them drain their bank account on silly schemes while you become healthier, leaner and richer.

    Sometimes people like to throw money at a problem when in reality you just need a plan, a method, and a little patience. Good luck OP

    I won't say I've never splurged on things that I don't *need* to lose weight (FitBit, tasty protein bars etc.) but they are absolutely unnecessary to success.
