Secrets of Success

Have A Partner



My husband is my coach, my motivator, and my watchdog, and my workout buddy. Without him I wouldn't be able to do this. So if you can have have someone to help you out that is the way to go. I tried it alone before and it didn't work. You need someone in your corner telling you how good you look after losing a few pounds it's a great motivator.

  • My coach is my mom. My husband weighs 135 pounds and has weighed that since high school (20 years ago) so he doesn't understand anything about the struggles of being over weight except watching me go through it. My mom however use to weigh 237 pounds and she now weighs 112....SO she is my coach. She is a wonderful person and cheers me on all the way. My dad also gives his "good job" words to me which I also appreciate and he can just LOOK at me (or anyone else for that matter) and tell WITHIN A POUND how much I weigh! - by RPM2008
    My husband and I have talked about doing this before, but it's been a touchy subject in the past so I think he feels like he'd have to walk on eggshells, although I assure him he won't. Any suggestions to make him feel more comfortable? - by ELLEGEEBEE
