Dealing with people's criticisms, opinions and advice about your diet can be difficult, particularly during the already-stressful holiday season. But with friends and family around, it's bound to happen! How do you deal with unwanted comments about your weight-loss efforts?

- Weight gain is hard enough without having to hear it from others. But why did you put on weight, was its from holiday or for health reasons for example?
A response such as "at least i enjoyed myself!" or "i feel much better and healthier, the main thing is my health" makes you feel better and the other person to only question positively afterwards.
