Isn’t it great when there is something you know you should do, but you don’t want to do it, so you get a friend to help you along and everything gets finished in no time? Then you wonder why you didn’t get started on it sooner. Weight loss can be the same way. Find trusted friends and family and let them know what you are doing. Find an exercise buddy to take a walk or a class with, and maybe someone with whom you can discuss your eating habits.
You do need to pick this friend/family member carefully! Ever had a friend jealous of your accomplishments? They seem like they want to be helpful but just end up undermining you. They try talking you out of your exercise class or try to get you to eat something that you are trying to avoid. They say that one won’t hurt you. Then they go on to talk about how you are wasting away and pretty soon you will blow away with the wind, even though you might have lost only one pound of the 20+ you need to lose. These are not the buddies for you.
You need to choose someone who understands your goals and is supportive of your efforts. This person will stand in front of you and scream for you to step away from the fridge when the midnight ice cream is calling you. S/He will get you out of bed in the morning when you decide that exercise is overrated and sleeping in is the way to go. S/He will be your cheering section when you accomplish your goals and your confidant when you have set backs.
This person can be someone that you actually get together with, or talk to on the phone, or even video call. You can find people on online forums, social networking sites, or specific weight loss sites. You just need to make sure that this person is supportive of you and your efforts. If you are confident in yourself and your goals, you can even start your own networking efforts and let people find you.
