Weight Loss Talk: Support Is Key #Shaklee180 #ShakleeBlogger

ShakleeThis is a sponsored post as part of the Shaklee Corporation blogger program.  I have received free products, online support and incentives for participating in the ShakleeCorporation blogger program. My opinions are my own.  People following the weight-loss portion of the Shaklee 180™ Program can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week.

Toni's TidbitsLosing weight is not easy. It’s something that requires a lot of effort and support. It doesn’t matter if someone has one or twenty pounds to lose, focus and support is key. As I finish up my month 5 as a Shaklee Ambassador, I am really realizing just how important support is. If you are surrounded by people who encourage bad habits and unhealthy life it’s going to be pretty difficult, lucky for me I’ve had people who are supportive and try to live healthier with me. Do we have some days of failure…sure, but overall the support I receive from my friends, family and Shaklee is what helps me push on even when I get frustrated.

Oh yes, I get frustrated when I don’t see a loss in either inches or weight but if I focus on that and give up I am never going to reach my goal. Instead I re-focus and let that push me. I can look at what may need to be changed, or maybe something I did change that didn’t work. I can sit down with the ones who support me and talk and get their thoughts. Sometimes, someone who is outside looking in can give a different view point that we may not see.

If you are that person outside looking in, offer encouragement. That can be in words, offering to exercise with the person who is trying to lose weight, simply listening to them when they have had an off day, or even celebrating with them when they lose a pound…because yes even a pound is huge deal…trust me I know. We all love support and someone on a weight lost journey will appreciate the support you give them, they are bettering themselves and that is all the reason to celebrate we need.

What are some ways you would support a friend or family member on their weight-loss journey?
