Sometimes we all need a little help with staying motivated. If you feel the need for help, just ask. Enlist your family and friends to be available when you need a boost. Get a workout buddy or a good friend you can count on to call in a pinch. There is no shame in asking for help if you truly need it!
Although it can be difficult at times, asking for help can be one of the best things you can do for yourself while trying to commit to a healthier lifestyle. You're not putting people out, you're not being a bother, you're just asking for someone to lift you up. Put yourself first and know that friends and family absolutely want to see you succeed, and further, will probably be touched that you asked for their assistance.
