Jenn, I also have only told a few people; my parents, my sister who has the band, my cousin who has the band, my two best friends, and of course my husband and kids. As far as anyone else is concerned they can think what they want. If people ask me what I am doing I am just going to tell them I am eating smaller and healthier meals, and excercising more. People get so weird when you tell them about it. I guess it is because they are not educated on the subject. Well, good luck to you!
