3 Reasons To Make Weightloss a Team Effort
Did you know 74% of adults are overweight or obese? If you’ve tried and failed to lose weight on your own, you’re not alone. Or maybe you’ve lost weight and then gained it all back. That ever happen?
Here’s the problem with trying to adopt healthy lifestyle habits on your own.
- If you blow off eating healthy food for sweet treats, drive-thru meals, and late-night snacking, nobody knows.
- If you set a goal to exercise every morning, but you hit the snooze button and go back to sleep, nobody knows.
- And if something big happens that stresses you out, food might be your way of coping with the situation.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Ever wonder how to tip the scale in the right direction, lose weight, and keep it off?
When you make weight loss a team effort, you’re a lot more likely to succeed, because this approach…
1. Increases motivation
When you surround yourself with like-minded people with similar goals to eat healthy foods, be more active, and achieve a healthy weight, something crazy happens. You’re a lot more likely make smart food choices, exercise, and stick with your plan to lose weight, even if you don’t see results on the scale right away. When you see other people making progress, that voice inside your head says, “If they can do it, so can I.”

2. Creates accountability
The “nobody knows” problem described above about making poor food choices and skipping exercise is the result of trying to make positive changes alone…without a support network.
When you make weight loss a team effort, you’ve got a built-in support system to help you stay on track, check in, and make a course correction if your diet goes off the rails.
You’re a lot more likely to make healthy choices when you share your goals with a weight loss support group and explain how you’re going to get there. Say buh-bye to the “nobody knows” excuse.
3. Learn from others
Ever been super excited about a new diet or workout plan to lose weight? Only, you really have no idea if it will work or not?
Instead of stepping into the dark, ask someone in your network who’s lost weight and kept it off how they did it.
Learn from your weight loss support group. It’s a much more efficient way to get from where you are to where you want to be.
The number one factor to lose weight…
