First, Crystal, congratulations for taking control of your health and fitness!

I have been where you are (not the weight but the comments). It feels very uncomfortable and embarrassing. Beginning and maintaining healthy eating habits and weightloss is very challenging. Tracking my food keeps me aware of whether I'm getting enough nutrients and calories or too much. This is foreign to most people in our society. Most people I know who have done WW gain it back eventually IF they don't keep up with the meetings or some type of accountability. You might want to go to a different meeting with a different group leader and explain your concerns to her if that's an option where you live.

I agree with what everyone's posted. As long as you're getting appropriate energy intake, not missing periods (if you're not menopausal), and not over-training, ignore the comments.
