As much as starting a weight loss journey is a personal choice, it really isn’t just about you.
I know, who else could it be about?
But the fact of the matter is, we are social beings. We live with people. We work with people. We have families and friends. And everything we do affects them in some way.
When you first bring it up to your people that you are thinking about getting healthier, most people are SO supportive.
However, when you start acting differently, turning them down for junk food dates, bringing healthy food to potlucks, and showing them your commitment to your health, the digs, snide comments, and guilt might set in.
It’s hard to watch people change. It’s in our biology to fight it. Our bodies and brains want to keep everything at the status quo. Watching someone change sparks a spotlight effect that has us look back on ourselves. And when we do that, we may feel jealous of someone else’s results. We could see what we aren’t doing for our own health that someone else is.
And our bodies and brains fight change. We don’t want to put in the work that someone else is so we belittle the effort. We tell them that they are being selfish. We tell them that they are “obsessed“. We tell them that it’s not going to work. We flaunt junk food in front of their face and brag about how we can have it and they can’t.
And it’s torture. And it works.
Sometimes, we are lucky to have the support of a friend, family member or co-worker. Sometimes, not so much.
And that’s where the accountability squad comes in.
When you need support, accountability, motivation, ideas and inspiration, we are here to help. And the best part is it’s all online, open 24 hours and can make the difference between success and failure.
Be a part of a group of women who understand what it’s like to make major change in your life. Who understand what it’s like to not have support. Who gets what it’s like to come off sugar and do a workout at 11PM because that’s the only time you have because your kids just WON’T go to bed on time. Who have questions and successes and learn how to ask for help when they need it.
Who doesn’t want to be a part of a group like that?!
Can’t wait to see you there!
