Motivation Strategies

Get Others Involved in Your Goals

Don't be a Weight-Loss Loner

Some possible ways to build a strong team by only asking one thing of each person:
  • Ask a friend to check with you once a week to see how you’re doing.
  • Ask your significant other to be there when you need to unload.
  • Ask a co-worker to keep you upbeat.
  • Ask your kids to help you find active ways to have fun.
  • Ask your brother-in-law to pass along inspirational reading and interesting health news.
  • Ask your photographer sister to take "before" and "in-progress" pictures.
Better yet, why not ask someone to join your healthy lifestyle quest? Going through and succeeding with a new program with a friend or buddy can create a bond that carries over into other areas of your life.
