It is so important to have someone on your team to help you achieve a healthier lifestyle. Many of us have families, co-workers and friends who aren't monitoring their caloric intake or fat consumption. Therefore, a new lifestyle can be very isolating for us. That's why having a buddy or network is can help you stay on track. Not only do they provide a supportive environment but they also hold you accountable. .
You may also need to re-evaluate friendships that are not sensitive or supportive of your resolution. It's tough enough to pass on the pal's birthday cake, but if someone is constantly trying to cajole you into eating more so that they donâ€™t feel so bad about their eating habits, you may need to spend less time with that person. Find a community or person who share your healthy aspirations, or, if you can, find a coach/counselor whose job it is to help you meet your goals.
