Toxic friendships hurting your motivation?

This could probably go into the relationship forum, but I think that it fits in here as well. I feel like, every time I make a run at losing weight and bettering myself, I end up losing a bunch of friends in the process. I’d go out with people and it’s almost like they enabled my bad behavior....
