Day 12: Grow Your Weight-Loss Support Network | 30-Day Weight Loss-athon

It’s time for Day 12 of the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon.

All tasks in the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon are adapted from the 52 Weight Loss Missions program.

Read the steps first, then take 10 minutes to think about them and take action. Ready?

What You Need:

  • A desire to share support.

Step 1

As well as the people already in your life, you may want to expand your weight-loss support network.

Did you know that people who use online support to motivate each other are less likely to give up on their exercise programs?

With 52 Weight Loss Missions, you have a built-in support network via the online check-ins and Facebook Page. You can always check in at one or both of these places to get encouragement, share ideas, tell of your successes, or enjoy the camaraderie with your mission-mates.

The great thing about having a weight-loss support network is that whether you give or receive, you gain.

Others can help you by sharing their tips and ideas, encouraging you, and patting you on the back when you do well.

But when you help others, it reinforces the things you’re learning and helps you crystallize your own discoveries – so helping others helps you, too.

Step 2

So let’s get some support!

Here are some ideas for upgrading your support network:

  • Ask a friend if they’d like to be your exercise buddy
  • Ask a friend if they’d like to do a healthy cooking course with you
  • Work with a personal trainer – by yourself or in a small group
  • Work with a nutritionist or dietician
  • Join a gym or group fitness program, where you’ll meet others with similar goals
  • Join or start a walking group at work
  • Get some friends to share the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon journey with you:

    I´m learning many things reading all the comments here and I love the feeling of being part of a group of active people who try to improve their lives. This is my motivation now.

    It´s really supportive to check in every morning. It´s motivating. I´m noticing that my evening walks are having results in different ways: more energy, better sleep, shrinking thighs – that’s motivating too. Feeling great. Thank you all!
