If you are thinking about investing your time or money in exercise equipment or diet programs, there are plenty of places to look. But if you had to settle on one essential item that would help you secure your success with a weight loss program, what would you choose? The thing that will probably help you the most is free. It’s a friend.
Find a Buddy
One of the best predictors of success with a weight loss or exercise program is social support. Dieters and new exercisers who have a friend or a workout buddy are more likely to be consistent in their program and stick to it over the long haul.
So how do you recruit a pal? If you don’t feel like you have friends or family that will support you on your weight loss journey, think about expanding your network. Do you have acquaintances at church, at work or in the neighborhood who might be interested in going for a fitness walk once or twice a week? Perhaps you could start a healthy recipe exchange with your friends online.
