Lose Belly Fat - 3 Ways to Increase Your Likelihood to Lose Weight

Aug 26, 2008
Losing weight is a tricky thing. You have probably tried over and over to lose weight, and told friends and family each time. If your past attempts to lose weight have failed your loved ones may not take your attempts at weight loss seriously anymore.

The problem with that is one of the most important factors to losing weight and keeping it off is having a good support system in place.

If you can't count your friends and family as support any longer try one of these 3 strategies to find support for your weight loss efforts.

Hire a personal trainer

A personal trainer is not as expensive as it used to be. You can get a personal trainer pretty cheaply at your local gym.

A personal trainer will help you stay accountable, and will also provide support and encouragement to help you stay on track with your workouts.

Sometimes paying for support is a great way to stick with something. If there is money on the line we are more likely to follow through.

Accountability Partner

There are places online or you can find a friend in the neighborhood or at the gym to be your accountability partner.

This type of partnership helps you stay on track with both your food and exercise. You know you will have to "report" to someone.

This simple fact often times helps you stay on track so you don't have to 'fess up to a binge or a skipped workout.

Online Community

You can find many different types of online communities. Many are based on particular weight loss programs and some are just general communities to help support each other while losing weight.

You can find specific groups within larger social networking communities like myspace or cafemom. These are great resources for weightloss support, since you will likely find people similar to yourself, with some of the same challenges.

There are also communities specifically designed to provide support for weightloss. You can find accountability partners and teams of people working on the same goals. This can be an excellent way to find support when those around you have lost a little faith in you.

What better way to show your loved ones you are serious about losing weight this time, than to find some support and just do it.

Having your friends and family behind you is ideal, but it's not possible for everyone. Sometimes someone who begins as a stranger can be an even better motivator and support person than those who are closest to us.

Don't let your lack of familial support be the thing that stops you from getting moving on your weight loss goals.

There is support out there, all you have to do it take a look around.
