Get Your Family on Board With Your Weight Loss
Explain Your Weight-Loss Goals
Tell your family and close friends that you’re embarking on a plan to lose weight, and explain why it’s important to you. Offer concrete reasons they can understand, such as wanting to feel better and have more energy, suggests Jessica Crandall, RD, CDE, a dietitian and a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Outline your weight-loss plan so they’re aware of the changes you’re planning to make, whether you’ll be eating out less frequently or going to the gym after work.
Gettingyour spouseto buy in to your plan is especially important. A study at the Heidelberg University in Germany showed that people can become suspicious of a partner’s desire to lose weight, thinking that the partner is trying to become more attractive for someone new. “People who hide their diet from others are only setting themselves up for failure long-term,” Crandall says.
