“You’re too skinny”

Have you ever lost weight and been told by a friend, family member or co-worker “You’re too skinny.”  Believe it or not, this sort of comment is made a lot to the client base I work with and I can’t tell you how frustrating that is for me and the client!  With 2/3 of the adults in America and now 1/3 of children being overweight or obese, have we forgotten what fit looks like?!

“I have to have cheese, I don’t care what the diet says!”
