This is the factor that many people leave out that accounts for the failure of many people to reach their weight goals. Let me define social support for you and help you find it and make it part of your fitness plan so you can be successful.
When foks get started with their new initiatives for fitness, they assemble all the gear they need and find a place to exercise, but they leave out the essential role of having someone there for support. This can apply to almost any goal you have: if you don’t get someone who will support you and hold you accountable, you will have trouble achieving.
The truth is that alcoholics won’t recover as long as they hang around drunks: it works similarly with weight loss.
If you want to be successful in your weight losing program, you shouldn’t hang around fat slobs that are unconcerned about fitness, appearance, and health: you won’t get encouragement from them. Now, our modern times find us with a lot more people who are alone than ever before. You need support in order to lose 20 pounds.
This isn’t all because people aren’t friendly, it’s because of our society. First, people move around a lot, especially if they go off to college because while at school, they might find a job in a different state.
This means that relatives and acquaintances are a long way off.
Then on the job, so many people work on their own in their own little corner or cube, they never get to know anyone on there. Neighbors are a lot the same too: they’re busiy and have scedules that are different from yours so you hardly even know what they look like. So there are roadblocks to support.
There are a number of methods the Internet can overcome this for you. For example, you can join an online forum or support group that is geared for busy people wanting to lose weight. Visit a weight loss forum today.
