Sometimes loosing weight with someone else and having a friendly competition can be helpful.
For myself, I find that if I have a weight loss buddy who likes a little fun, friendly competition, it can go a long way in assisting me to reach my goals. When I want to give, knowing that I am trying to beat someone's weigh in, keeps me motivated and dedicated to the goals I have set.
Find someone at the gym (make sure they're doing something you enjoy!) who clearly loves to sweat, and set up a mental competition with him/her - try to keep up the intensity, speed, duration, and attitude! with which s/he approaches the workout. Getting lost in this competition passes time and feels super rewarding in the end. It's always hard to challenge our own bodies in the way others do!
