Weight loss is a fickle thing. It seems to come
and go with the wind.
You try one weight loss diet, and it works for a while, but then you quit, or get sick of
depriving yourself, and the weight starts to creep back on.
The troubling thing is that the weight loss success you had disappears and you may end up
weighing more than you did before you started the weight loss diet.
It’s so unbelievably frustrating isn’t it? But what are you supposed to do? You follow a
plan, it works and then it fails.
One weight loss
secret that not many people use
is social support.
That doesn’t mean you have to find a program to join and go to meeting where you get weighed
on a weekly basis for all to see. Nor does it mean that you need to have a cheerleading section patting you on the
back and cheering you along the whole way.
All social support means, in terms of weight loss, is that you need a few people (1 will do,
but more is better) that have similar goals as you that you can lean on when times get tough and can bounce ideas

weight loss support via email (I offer this…hint, hint).
You could find a friend or co-worker who is trying to accomplish the same thing as
Then you could set up weekly "weight loss round-ups" (or whatever the hell you want to call
it) where you get together and talk about your successes and what’s bugging you, or what you don’t
Having someone to lean on when times get tough (and they will get tough) is crucial if you
want to succeed with your weight loss goals.
Everybody needs somebody to help out…everybody.
So find somebody right now that you can lean on, that you can trust and who will help you
succeed with your weight loss goals. Your success hinges on it.
