Weight-loss support is key to ongoing success

While losing weight and improving your health and wellness is a positive time in your life, many people can feel lonely and isolated during their weight-loss journey. This can cause them to struggle and lack motivation.

Having weight-loss support is key to ongoing success as well as long-term weight-loss maintenance. Having someone to turn to and guide you through the challenging times can be the difference between giving up or staying motivated to keep going and reaching your weight-loss goals.

Here are some of the benefits of having somebody in your corner to support you through your weight-loss plan.


It keeps you motivated and in a positive mindset

Having people around you who know what your weight-loss goals are and how important they are to you means they can remind you of your goals and the progress you’ve made when you find it hard to see. They can cheer you on and encourage you to keep going when you feel like giving up.


Accountability

Being accountable to someone who knows your goals helps to keep you on-track and motivated. There may be times you feel yourself slipping, which is ok and normal, so having someone to help you recognise this and get you back on your weight-loss plan can be crucial to success.


Weight-loss support can guide you through challenging times

Any weight-loss plan can be challenging at times. It’s hard sometimes to know how to overcome challenges on your own, and having someone who can give you practical advice can give you the confidence and self-belief you need to keep going.


It removes the loneliness of the weight-loss journey

Sometimes weight loss can feel lonely and like no-one else understands. Support people can share your challenges but also celebrate your successes with you too. They can share the highs and lows and will be there when you’re doubting yourself.

Weight-loss support can come from family, friends, colleagues and of course your Jenny Craig Consultant.
