Weight Loss Heroes
Who are Your Heroes?
“Who are the heroes in your world -- the people who've got your back no matter what?”— Oksana Aron, M.D.
Perhaps the hardest part of staying on your weight loss program is having everyone around you be on your team.
One patient recently intimated, overtime staff hours were plenished with a tray of junk food to boost morale and sagging energy levels -- the exact opposite of what she needed to keep strong in her weight loss resolve.
Getting your friends and family behind you is one thing, getting the rest of the world on your side is another.
- Let coworkers know your intentions: "Don't give me that donut. Don't even ask me…"
- Bring your own life saver to office functions -- pack a safety healthy snack to keep you away from temptation at office party trays.
- Don't go anywhere you don't need to be. After hours pub time is great social fun, but even one drink is gonna bust your diet ego. If you can't keep it to water and lemon, say, then suggest other plans or make sure you'll be with people who won't press you to consume disaster calories.
