One of the key parts of having a successful, weight loss journey is truly the support that you get from friends and family. If you are with people who understand why you are embarking on a new journey and try to help you with this new chapter in your life then it makes loosing weight that much easier!!! This is the one thing that I needed an extra little push in my. Let me explain what I mean....I needed someone to not only give me support, but someone who was my "cheerleader" and workout buddy to get me started. If I didn't have that then I don't know where I would be right now! It's the honest truth! Support from others can either make or break your weight loss efforts. I understand that you have the ultimate choice and that is true, but when you are having a difficult time with jumping on the bandwagon to begin with and no support there for you; it just makes losing weight that much harder!
Like I said above, I was lucky enough to find a workout buddy and my own "cheerleader" who gave me that extra push to get started. Once I get going, then it's hard for me to stop, especially when I'm "In the Zone" like I am now!! No one can stop me now, but before it was different. When I felt like I was too big to go to the gym because I didn't want anyone looking at me, I felt embarrased:( Or I used food as a crutch to get me through times when I was sad and it helped me get through times when I was "too busy" to bring my lunch to work. So, I would just buy some, not so healthy food from McDonald's!
Find a group of people, that will help you with getting started and give you the positivity that you will need throughout this journey. You could join Weight Watchers or even make your own forum on weight loss websites, or you could even start blogging about it;)
|I have to give some love to my supporters!|
I hope you all have just as much, if not more support than I do, when starting your new chapter in your life:)
Thanks for stopping by:):):)
Until next time!!!!
