Weight Loss Support is invaluable in weight loss, and a great support team can be the difference between long term success and failure. Support needs are different for each one of you. Some of you like people to notice your weight loss, and like to talk about it, but some of you are private and feel threatened when people notice you.
Part of your success story, will be to determine what you need, and gather a few support people that can help you on your journey. You must learn to verbalize to others what is helpful to you. This can be difficult, and may mean you will need to develop some new friends.
Many times your friends, and family members do not understand the support that you need, or want you to succeed. They can even intentionally make your path difficult. They may not understand that you are not dieting, but making Lifestyle Solutions, and trying to develop healthy diet habits.
They may judge you when you eat a treat, because you are not depriving yourself. They may think you are not dieting correctly, and give you unwanted advice. This can be hurtful.
When you are looking for your weight loss support team, you should be looking for:
Surround yourself with people who will go the extra mile for you. Maybe your friends will help you by choosing to eat at healthier restaurants with you, removing their candy dishes from their desks at work, bringing healthy treats to your book club, or just joining you at your lunch hour for a salad, and half an hour walk and talk. There are friends that will do these wonderful things for you. Keep them near!
