We all know that trying to lose weight alone can be hard.  Finding a support group can make it easier. It has been found that people with at least three friends or family members supporting them to lose weight were much more successful than those who went about the difficult process alone. Not only did they lose weight faster, but they also kept it off.

A buddy or two can help to hold you accountable and you share your eating log with them each day. They also share theirs with you and you work together at eating right. You can also go to the gym together and attend fitness classes together as well – everything is more fun with a friend.

You’re a lot less likely to binge eat and give in to the temptation to eat unhealthy food when you have someone to share your food logs with. You are also less likely to skip your gym trips and more likely to stick to your workout routine. You can also give one of your buddies a call or send them an email when you feel like you’re about to get off track and eat a big slice of cake. In other words, a buddy stops you from falling off of the wagon and you work to keep your buddy on track as well.

Here are a few tips in finding a Weight Loss Buddy
