Weight Loss – You Have to Want it Enough to Change Your Life…


Question: I just have not been committed to the weight loss plan I made as a New Year’s resolution. How can I stay on track when it seems everyone around me isn’t ?

Answer: The short answer is change the people you’re around.

It’s true that spending time with people who are overweight, or drink, or smoke elevates the likelihood the you might become overweight or drink or smoke. This is not to say you can’t be friends with people with unhealthy habits, because you can. You just can’t spend lots of time with them.  The same goes for spending time with pessimistic people.

Choose your friends wisely. There was a saying in the army that you wisely consider who will be sharing a foxhole with you.

The longer answer is to elevate yourself above the popular culture. It’s the more difficult path to take, but if you want more out of life you have to be willing to work harder to get it, because contrary to popular opinion, no one is going to give it to you.
