When it comes to weight loss and sticking to an exercising program you are motivated from two emotions; fear and pleasure. You are also pushed from two directions; internally and outwardly.

Your success in sticking with an exercise and weight loss program may just come down to you asking for help - unless pride gets in your way. The key to longevity is surrounding yourself with people who will give you support followed up by accountability.

Your Inner Circle

You can tell a lot about a person byrepparttar friends they keep. This is a very true statement. Let me say this first. Many decisions in life have strings attached to them. Strings sometimes make it virtually impossible to accomplish any goal. However, it is important to be aware of who influences yourepparttar 150830 most. Usually there are two types of people around you:

Toxic, negative, pessimistic people Non-toxic, encouraging support people.

Negative, Pessimistic People: Toxic

If you try to get support and encouragement from this type of person, all youre going to get is frustrated. If possible, dont spend much time with them.
