Where can I get social support?

Social Support and Weight Loss

Healthy social support is vital to successful weight loss. There are many avenues from which to get social support. Try to socialize with individuals who have similar motives, values and goals. In other words, get involved in social activities that are aimed at improving your health. Examples of positive social activities include joining a gym, a dance club or a cycling group. Other positive social activities might be contributing healthy food recipes to your local newspaper or writing an article for your local running club newsletter. Another idea is to take an activity class to learn how to play tennis or to swim. There is a camaraderie that develops over time in group activities. Everyone seems to be supportive, encouraging one another in and out of the class. Surrounding yourself with social support can be one way to stay motivated over the long term.
