Birds of a Feather

Thursday, October 16, 2008

Weight loss and lifestyle change are challenging, even for the best of us. However, both of these things are accessible to those who want it bad enough and who are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen. One issue that is critical to success for lifestyle change has to do with the support and encouragement that you get from those around you. If they are supportive and always encouraging you to make healthy choices, your odds for success are very good. On the other hand, if those around you are not supportive and are constantly trying to take you off track at every turn, well, good luck! Simply put, and as that old saying so aptly states, “Birds of a feather flock together.” My point here is this: If it’s weight loss and healthy living you’re working on, you have a much better chance of succeeding if you surround yourself with like-minded birds…I mean people!

Take drinking for example. If you are trying to stop drinking alcohol, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to hang around with people who go to bars and drink a lot as a form of recreation. Their influence may be a little too powerful to resist. It might be necessary to bring some new people into your life… new people, that is, who embrace healthy living. The more time you spend with those who share your goals, the more likely you are to achieve them. I’m not suggesting you toss all of your current friends overboard. What I am suggesting, however, is that you take a good hard look at the personalities you surround yourself with and make some judgments regarding where it’s best for you to spend most of your time. When all is said and done, birds of a feather do tend to flock together!
