Losing weight is not easy - I find it very difficult. I achieve more when I have support from those around me and I find it hard to 'go it alone'. Keeping motivated and driven towards that goal can be tough - that's why having a friend or partner to support you on your weight loss journey can make a world of difference.
I know myself that I was at my most successful when I was 'dieting' with someone else. You are there for each other to celebrate the triumphs, commiserate when things don't go quite to plan and keep each other focussed and on track - I even found a little bit of competition quite motivating ;)
As much as weight loss seems like such a personal thing, I think it can also be quite a social thing - bringing like minded people together. That first step is not so intimidating when you've got a friend to hold your hand.
I love Weight Watchers philosophy, "Together is Better"; and I genuinely believe that is the case. I know some fantastic couples who have successfully lost weight together. They are are team; they have each others back and they work together to achieve their goals. After all; in my opinion, weight loss - when done so healthily, results in a change of lifestyle - something that is much easier to achieve when you have support from those around you.
