Losing weight is never easy, but having a supportive crew certainly makes it easier. Find friends who can
help keep you motivated
(like the neighbor who’s not going to be happy when you sleep through your morning run). Delegate
some chores to a family member so you can make time to go food shopping or exercise. On the flip side, avoid getting yourself
into “compromising situations” (think: dinner at an Italian restaurant) with an acquaintance who always seems to be
sabotaging your slim-down efforts.
