Blogging is MY support systemWhy a support system is so important to long-term success
You know that if you're trying to lose weight, you're not alone. Weight loss is a goal many people share. People want to lose weight to look better, to feel better, to stay or get healthier, and to live longer. Connecting with them makes the journey so much easier.
Consider the following startling statistic: Approximately 70 percent of dieters who go it alone fail. For many people, these attempts to shed pounds fail because their diets are too rigid, and therefore not sustainable, and their approach lacks a support system to help them achieve long-term success.
When you're trying every day to stay the course, you need all the help you can get, including from non-dieters. That means telling family, friends, coworkers, and workout partners about your goals, and asking for their cooperation.
Your support system is your cheering section, your fans rooting for you, and your chief motivators. Usually, people get really psyched up in the beginning of a fitness program, but in a few weeks, motivation can wane. That's when your support system can keep you going and help you turn your life around.
Once you talk to friends and family about your weight and health goals, you might be surprised to find out that they care more than you know.
