Team Up: A to Z Weight-Loss Tips for Long-Term Success - Tip T

Sometimes it's easier to succeed "with a little help from our friends", as the Beatles wrote.

Making positive changes in eating and exercise habits can be tough, so TEAM UP with family or friends!
Finding people with a common goal can help you succeed.

Here's how a TEAM can help:

Teach- Team members can teach each other new things, such as how to cook healthy recipes, a new exercise routine, or tips on how they control temptations.
Encourage- A team mate can really help encourage you on your nutrition plan or during your exercise routine. We all need encouragement when tackling something difficult. It helps us through the rough times so we can achieve our goals.
Accountability- On those days when you just don't feel like exercising, your team mate is there to hold you accountable. For example, if you set a date and time to exercise, you feel more obligated to actually show up if someone is waiting for you.
Motivation- Team mates can help motivate each other to follow their meal plan or complete their daily exercises.

TEAM up to help you achieve your healthy lifestyle goals!
