During your weight loss journey there will be many highs and great successes to celebrate. You might also find that during some weeks, your motivation may be down which could be a sign that you need to remind yourself of your goals and to call upon the support of others.
Having the support of family, friends, colleagues or a Jenny Craig personal weight loss consultant to share the highs and lows with, can make the journey a little easier and much more achievable. Research has shown that social support has been linked with lasting weight loss success (1). So how can you make the most of these support networks to keep you on track to achieve your goals?
At Jenny Craig, we know having a reliable and friendly face to turn to each week works and this is why we make it easier with weekly one-on-one consultations so you have someone in your corner, helping to keep you motived as you progress towards your goals.
If you’re feeling like you need some more support or that friendly face to turn to each week to help you achieve your weight loss goals, why not contact us to find out more!
Family & Friends
Family and friends are often a great support to help us reach our goals. See if you can involve your family and friends in your journey to keep your motivation high and help them understand how they can help you. The more people that are on board and know about your goals, the more support you’ll have to stay on track. And it’s not just you that can be making the most of a healthy lifestyle. Your support network can also give it a go! Try ‘buddying up’ with a friend for an activity, this might be as simple as a walk in the local park.
Work can sometimes seem like a challenging environment to stick to your goals, but we all have the opportunity to make the most of what the office does offer and get our colleagues on board to support one another to lead a healthy lifestyle!
