Get help from a strong social network
Support from your friends and your social network can really help your efforts go a long way. Your friends can inspire you, motivate, and even hold you accountable to your own decisions. Never underestimate the influence of a positive environment. Acknowledging and rewarding your progress will give you even more strength to continue. Talking about your progress with friends can boost your ego and strengthen your decision making.
To lose weight, you don’t just need a solid diet plan full of nutritional advice, you also need:
– A new perception of your lifestyle and your daily habits. You need to identify negative patterns and disassociate food from negative feelings or activities like watching TV.
– A good attitude towards your life and your body where you view your eating options as lifestyle choices and not calories.
– A positive environment with good friends who hold you accountable and support you.
