In losing weight, it’s important to have the support of loved ones along the way. However, sometimes family and friends can unknowingly sabotage our efforts by tempting us with unhealthy foods or making negative comments about our weight loss goals. To avoid alienating loved ones while still achieving your weight loss goals, communication is key. Be clear about your goals and ask for their support in a non-confrontational manner. Additionally, try to find activities to do together that support a healthy lifestyle, such as going for walks or trying new healthy recipes. Remember to also show appreciation for their efforts to support you.
