Get others involved in your diet
Chances are there are many reasons why you have made the decision to lose weight. Of course it will make you healthier. And you will feel better about yourself. And you will be less prone to disease. Okay, you already know the reasons.
Motivations are key here. Honestly it all lands on you, right? But one of the best motivations is to lose weight is for others in your life. They have a vested interest in your health. Right? So get others involved in your diet.
It is very important that you let others know of your decision. That will help for a few different reasons.
First they will be supportive. Knowing that you are watching what you eat, they won’t try to tease you by eating that Twinkie in front of you anymore. (Maybe they should join you on your weight loss plan?) And they will understand when you don’t want to order that appetizer when eating out.
Your temptations will diminish. When you have others keeping track of you, watching you, will you go for that desert tray like you used to? Chances are you won’t.
People are social animals. There are others in our lives that have tremendous impact. Most for the good. And when they see you trying to make improvements. They will want to be a part of it. And help you out. Get others involved in your diet.
Also when you slip – and we all do – they will be there to help you get back on track.
You know one of the best reasons to get others involved is that there is a good chance they could also use a reason for losing weight themselves. And if they see you making and effort and succeeding, they just might get on board. How amazing would that be?
