The Buddy System: Why Weight Loss & Getting Fit Is Easier When You Do It With a Friend

When you start a new healthy lifestyle plan of diet and exercise, it's so much easier when you elicit a friend to do it with you. When you spend time with someone who supports your "mission" and challenges you, you may be more motivated to stick with it. 

  • You can share triumphs.
  • You can share failures.
  • You can come up with solutions together.
  • Plus, you can catch up on the latest updates with your friend.

There is power in numbers, so make that connection work for you in more ways than one.
