Positive Support System

March 1, 2018

In life, the most important thing is to surround yourself with people that want to see you succeed. Whether you’re going through a weight loss program, a healthy lifestyle change or any big changes in your life. We’re not saying to leave everyone behind and stop being friends with them, but initiate a conversation with your loved ones, let them know your new goals and if you sense any negativity, limit your time with them.

We know how hard that could be but when you’re making big changes that you are truly passionate about, surround yourself with supportive and positive people – not those that want to sabotage you or show you negativity.

Here are some examples:

Your partner brings home a special treat, your favourite ice cream – what do you say?

IThank them for the nice gesture and remind them of your new goals. Put the treat somewhere you won't see. The next day, let Calorie Wiz know and the Wiz will calculate just how much you can have to fit into your meal plan. Divide the rest of the ice cream into smaller portions to enjoy on another day.

Work/school colleagues expect you to go for drinks and appetizers after work, or after sports game—what do you do?

Take the lead and plan the after work/sports event. Pick a restaurant that offers both choices, healthy and fried, this way everyone is happy. Drink soda water with lemon instead of beer.

It's Holiday season, so many parties and get togethers, how to overcome temptation and others pressuring you to indulged.
