Use buddy system to manage weight

        Behind every successful person is generally at least one supporter.

        A parent, spouse, mentor, teacher, role model, coach, or friend can be a powerful asset in goal attainment.

        Weight management is no exception. Your decision to engage in healthy lifestyle changes is an act of courage.

        Let others know the types of support you need.

        Ask for support and set limits on any behaviors or situations that sabotage your efforts.

        Remember, no one is a mind reader. Let others know what is helpful and what is not.

        Recognize that others may have difficulty adjusting to your lifestyle change and the new you.

        Programmed support includes an effort on your part to seek out others of like mind who can help you during the challenging process of lifestyle change.

        Consider finding a “buddy” from among your friends and associates who is also motivated to lose weight and increase physical activity.

        Avoid the “naysayers” who put down or otherwise diminish your efforts at this time.
