Fat Friends Can Keep You Fat – Weight Loss Strategy

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Your friends can keep you fat. Think about it. If you hang around overweight people, your activities are probably centered around eating and or drinking. Your activities are probably centered around non-active activities like sitting. If you want to lose weight, you may want to start hanging around people that are thinner and fitter. You may want to do activities with them like, going for walks, riding your bike, join a yoga or exercise class with them. This will get and keep you thinner and fitter.

Now, I am not telling you to dump your overweight friends. I am saying that you need to increase your activity level if you want to lower our weight. If your current friends aren’t willing to do change some of the activities you are doing with them, then you will need to make friends with people that do. If your current friends aren’t concerned about their health, then you need to start hanging out with people that are.

Additionally, I have found that misery loves company. If your overweight friends are like mine, they will either intentionally or unintentionally try to derail your weight loss. It is common for overweight friends and family to try to derail your weight loss. There are many reasons for this that are outside the scope of this article. However, if you want to lose weight, you will need to deal with this. Ignore your friend’s comments like.

  • You are too thin.
  • You look terrible. You need to gain some weight back.
  • You look sick.
  • Ask your doctor what a good weight range for you is, and then stay in that range. If you are in that range, stay in that range, and ignore everyone’s comments.

    Remember that your doctor knows more than your friends about your health. Listen to your doctor and ignore your friends. Eventually, your friends and family will get used to the thinner you, and you won’t have to deal with the harassment.

    You can do it!!!
