Buddy Up for Weight Loss
Being a Good Buddy
Remember that to truly benefit from the buddy system you need to establish a give and take relationship. It's just as important for you to bolster your buddy when they hit an exercise rut or to be there in their time of crisis. But also keep it light. Make time to do nurturing things like going for a manicure when one or the other reaches a significant goal; or have a potluck lunch with your group, where you can try out each other's tasty, low-cal recipes. By keeping your buddy relationships energized and upbeat, you'll all reap the benefits of strength in numbers.
