When you’ve got a goal, whatever it might be, it’s often a challenge to stay motivated and stay on track. Having a friend to support you is unbelievably powerful, I know how much more I’ve achieved since starting to put more effort in with my friends. Even the smallest things ever are easier now that I’ve got a strong network of friends.
My friends give me confidence to be who I want to be and to do what I want, they inspire me to try new things and are always there if I need a helping hand with anything, pretty darn amazing. I’ve gained some awesome new friends in the last six months (since my divorce) who have really helped me to come out my shell, it really shows how important it is to surround yourself with the right type of people.
Dieting, however, is something that might seem like a less obvious thing to team up for, it’s a personal thing, something that you might not want to share as much. I’ve seen first hand though, how teaming up can really improve your chances of making a diet work.
My Mum is the perfect example, she’s been wanting to loose weight for as long as I can remember, but being a busy Mum looking after a family, she really struggled to cater for her diet needs and her family. It’s only been since me and my sister grew up that things have changed. My sister has also been dieting, so when my Mum and sister decided to start dieting together, it was the first time that they actually stuck to it and saw results. You can share the cooking effort, spur each other on and be around for advise too. And that’s why Weight Watchers new campaign is promoting teaming up with your friends to improve results of dieting.
To celebrate the new Weight Watchers Together is Better campaign, they’re hosting a competition on their Facebook page, where you can win a fridge and a fridge make over for you and a friend, which you can find out more about here. There’s also three new special offers for anyone feeling inspired to sign up to Weight Watchers, which you can also find via their Facebook page.
How do your friends help you with challenges?
