The more people you are willing to tell that you are trying to improve your health and trying to diet the better I do. Its just that simple, you can't do it alone. Working with a friend and checking up on each other is a great way to start. Don't get discouraged if you have a bad day. Just try harder.

We tend to shy away from telling people we are on a diet and we don't want to tell people how much we weigh, but I think telling people holds me accountable - I have nothing to be ashamed of! We are who we are and people love us for who we are. If you trust people they will support you - sometimes it takes a team to win a challenge - so rally up some support!220
Every diet I have ever been on says to tell people about the fact that you are on a diet to help motivate you to stick to the diet. This time I am not telling anyone. I want to have the surprise of my family and friends as they realize that I made changes to my life that were just for me as they see me lose the weight and feel more confident in myself.
I have been on a weight loss journey for 4 years. In that time, I have received "helpful" hints from folks...during that time, people have basically insulted me or disregarded all of the work I have done to lose all of the weight I have lost...In pursuit of my goals I always make sure to tell people to do what works for them...not what works for me...have faith, don't give up and be proud of who you are. Don't waste your time trying to be someone else.
