👨👨👧👧 SUPPORT & WEIGHT LOSS 👩👩👧👦⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Following our last post on the 6 ingredients that contribute to a successful weight loss plan, as promised, we are breaking down each one individually and at the top of the list we've got support.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When we think of support, we think of having the love and care of the other people. However, it's still our responsibility to instigate support in our lives. Some of us are lucky enough to be part of a loving family, and others have to seek out support outside of their immediate circle.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are part of the first group, please don't be afraid to ask for help. It is not weak, it is not shameful and in fact, it's safe to say it's quite the opposite- it's as brave as one can be. If you have people trying to help you, accept it. Don't get your knickers in a bunch and assume that they're "picking on you". We all need to be picked on and sometimes we need someone we love and trust to force us to do something uncomfortable. And what's the worst that could happen anyways? Do you know how many people we've had join the gym over the last decade with SO MUCH resistance? We can confidently say that these people usually end up being our most loyal BMB family members.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you don't have people picking on you, pick on yourself. Find a community, a group, a social circle, a job, a partner, a meetup group, a Facebook group, a gym, a club... ANYTHING! Find something or someone that will help you and hold you accountable. We are seriously SO lucky with this funky thing called the world wide web to find new connections so easily.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lastly, if you know of someone on a weight loss journey, don't you dare tell them they are boring, missing out on life, no fun, and proceed to shove cake in front of them. We always say, if there's a human being critical of another human, usually it's nothing more than a reflection of the critic's insecurities. And to those of you on the journey, just remember that the next time someone isn't supportive of you.
