How the Buddy System Can Save You
Do you want to lose weight? Then buddy up. Let’s face it – the path to wellness is long and daunting. Without a good support system, it’s easy to get lost along the way. That’s what friends are for.
If you want to feel like you aren’t alone in your diet endeavors, finding a partner to help you stay on the light track may be just the answer you’ve been looking for to help keep you motivated. In fact, a study conducted by Brown Medical School and Dartmouth University showed that those dieters who had an exercise buddy who succeeded at weight loss also lost weight themselves. It’s simple to understand why diet buddies are so helpful. It’s far too easy to blow off your daily exercise regimen. Having a partner who you’re committed to will give you accountability, and you’ll be less likely to come up with an excuse as to why you can’t exercise. When you’re in need of someone to boost your motivation, a workout buddy is the ideal candidate. Like any other partner in your life, it’s important to choose carefully.
You don’t want someone who won’t take the job seriously. In other words, just because a person is a good friend or lover in life doesn’t mean they’ll meet the criteria as a diet buddy. A diet buddy is the type of person who will call you on every slip, yet praise you for every step in the right direction.
First, it’s important to figure out what you want in a diet buddy. Are you looking for someone with whom you can work out every day? Or are you looking for a person to lean on when the chips are down and the number on the scale is up? When you find a buddy, you should make sure you both have the same agenda and are looking for the same thing out of the relationship so that neither one of you will be disappointed. Whether you look online, at the gym or even in your neighborhood, be sure you find a buddy who is committed to the weight-loss cause.
