New Year\'s Weight Loss Buddy Systems

New Year's is right around the corner and the one resolution on a lot of people's mind is weight loss. Start the year off right and get a weight loss buddy system together. I am going to talk about the benefits of having the support from someone going through the same thing as you and the many different ways you can find that support.

Benefits of Using the Buddy System

It is all too easy to get lack about anything when you have no one to answer to. I know if it wasn't for my fiancee asking every morning how my workout went, there would be days I would be way to tempted to skip it. Since I know he's going to ask and can tell in my voice if I'm fibbing or not, I keep doing. That's one great benefit about using the buddy system. Having someone there who is going to ask you how the diet or the exercising is going will help keep you honest.

Having my sister do the workouts with me, keep me going some mornings. I feel so guilty thinking I can't do this this morning when she is right beside me working her butt off. At the end of the month when we take our measurements and weight ourselves, we have each other to say "Wow, you did great this month". For me its great also having to admit out loud to myself and others my success or failure.

For me the best benefit is having some one there who is going through the same struggle to loss weight and understand what I'm going through. There are days when all I want is to curl up on the couch watch a movie and pig out on junk food. Then my sister walks in the room and becomes my guilty conscious. Which leads into a lecture on what all that junk food is going to do to all my hard work for that day. So I end up settling for just a small bowl of ice cream, lol.

Different Weight Loss Buddy Systems

The oldest buddy system is of course family, neighbors, or co-workers. This does work great for those who physically needs someone there to be held accountable to.

With the advancement of technology, you can find someone states away in the same boat as you. You can go to any search engine and type in weight loss online or weight loss buddy system and have hundreds of sites come up. Find one you like, join, and then have access to groups, forums, blogs, and all sort of people willing to help. Most of them are free so there is no reason not to find a buddy system you fit in with and join.

Get ahead start on your New Year's Resolutions. Now that you know the benefits of working out with someone or having someone to talk about your progress with, find one. Maybe you heard someone you know talking about wanting to get in shape or maybe you already have seen a place online that interest you. Either way lets help motivate each other to reach get fit and reach our goals.
