Weight Loss Buddy: 50 Tips & Tricks
Deciding to be a Weight Loss Buddy is monumental. More than a friend, a WLB is a motivator, advisor and incentive-builder. You are a lifeline, a rock and essential part of another person's weight-loss success.
Indeed, research from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine shows the power of emotional support in helping people shed pounds. In their study, friends who followed a weight loss program together lost more weight and were more likely to complete their diet program and maintain their weight loss over time.
As a buddy, you'll make the process of shedding pounds less overwhelming for your buddy by ensuring that their goals are realistic and achievable. You'll
help them sustain their motivation and remove the obstacles that trip up even the most committed dieters.
Whether you touch base by email, phone, text, or mail, you'll be staying in close touch and working hard. Here's your chance to make a real difference in your buddy's life and in your own as well.
