When Friends Learn from My Healthier Lifestyle

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I have a good friend who's watched my progress over the past year and been very supportive. He recently bought a bike and we rode together for the first time this morning on a beautiful day in San Diego. He is starting to talk about eating better and doing more exercise! How wonderful! It was great to see that my year has had a positive impact on someone else.

    That is wonderful!!!! It always makes us feel better about what we are doing by changing the way we were to a better healthier person. If we can give just one person the inspiration to start living a better life, then it is worth all the sweat we have put in to our weight loss. Now you have a exercise buddy!

    It must make you feel realy good that you are inspiring your friend. For me and the people in my life it seems that this "Tom Sawyer" technique -- just matter-of-factly demonstrating how much better I feel because I'm getting healthier-- works a lot better than preaching at the other person or "encouraging" them to do what I am trying to do.
