Beware of So-Called "Friends" Bearing Gifts!

Now look...it has NOT been a secret that I've begun my weight loss "journey" within my family. I AM getting rid of the pounds (and the tape measure confirms with a big: Amen!) So could someone PLEASE tell me "why" a family member would bring me "Snickers" candy on Halloween KNOWING that we do not celebrate Halloween plus Snickers is my favorite candy bar? I was tempted to throw Holy Water on her (I would like to say that I turned the other "cheek", so to say, but being honest....I just couldn't find THAT bottle)!
I am beginning to hear the "concerned for my health" talk; for example: "Don't you think that you've lost enough now"? Here's a GOOD one! : "You're losing that beautiful butt (my husband says it's fine with him..so who cares?) it's getting smaller"! (That's the point, crazy). Just to put honest concern at bay I AM seeing a doctor who weighs me (on the 10th of each month) and makes sure everything is going as HEALTHY as possible.
I've heard of people that can sabotage you in "things" but really? I look and feel better! I can walk and my energy has increased. I'm a long way off from looking like I need a meal...ugh!
The only thing that I can assume is that they're jealous or afraid. Some people want you to stay as-you-are and are afraid of change! No more sitting in the house eating "food/snacks" and watching tele' all day, or cooking up a meal to feed an Army (which we don't have at home) with them; I want some sunshine on my face and enjoy the world. Why don't they?
Well, as mom used to say: "Judas was a part of Jesus' crowd, too".
I guess I've found mine but I have that "bottle" at arms length now!
