    -Close family supportive of fitness for health/de-stressing, not supportive of my aesthetics/physique goals so much, do not understand 'obsession' with nutrition/diet

    -Extended family disappointed I don't drink more and Nan would prefer me to eat more cake

    -1 friend who lifts, closest friends supportive although do not understand nutrition importance

    Family are supportive.

    Friends are mostly gym friends who kick my ass and tell me off for not training everyday.

    My dad used to go gym, he told me start lifting and usually mocks me for my small calves
    13 of my friends go to the SAME gym. The rest go to other gyms. So prett much all of my friends lift ^.^

    Family is indifferent as they are all fat slobs.

    Friends are typically supportive but I only have one friend who's into it as much as I am.

    My mum doesn't understand a lot of the things I do, such as eating a lot and so on. She also notices i spend a lot of money on bodybuilding which she's not too happy about. However, I'm an adult and she knows there's no way she will ever stop me from doing it, and besides that she's fairly supportive of the actual physique building since she likes her son to look good.

    My brother is also into his lifting and so is very supportive. As for the rest of my family and friends, they're indifferent really. I know a lot of people that also train and/or bodybuild (guys at my gym for example) and they're obviously supportive, though I'd call them acquaintances rather than friends as I don't really hang out with them outside of the gym.

    I don't really have any people in my life who are unsupportive of me or my goals in anything. And if they were, well, I'm my own person and will probably do it anyway.

    Normal level of worry would be around the level of 'it'd be nice if they were supportive', you are probably beyond that. Excessive worrying, needing validation from other people, making problems out of things that should be minor etc. are all consequences of that and none are good. It's all linked to being your own person.
