WEIGHT LOSS SUPPORT ONLINE GROUP
Whether taking Skinny Fiber or not, we are here for you! Our friendly group supports one another in a private setting. Most of the members have tried several times to lose weight alone; to only gain it back again. Some are starting to lose weight with friends in this group. Others are maintaining their weight loss while encouraging the other members. We motivate one another, share what we are doing, progress, which foods and diet plans, etc. Watch along or dive right in ... YOU ARE WELCOME!
THINK YOU DON'T NEED WEIGHT LOSS SUPPORT? CHECK THIS OUT!
A lot of people choose not to tell anyone when trying to lose weight. Is this you, too? If so, please read all of this ... I'm glad you've gotten started in your weight loss journey and hope that you are doing well so far, but I am also concerned about your long term success; especially for those of you that have not been successful at weight loss many times in the past? You already know there is no magic solution. Weight loss is hard, but it is easier when you have people to learn, share and be accountable with each day (or as you need). You should have some type of support this time around, so that you can change some of the bad habits that keep you in the yoyo weight loss stage and feel free to use the weight loss group as your sound board, reference and for friendships that you might feel you need right now.
Above the rest with weight loss success? Think you're at "that point" where you don't need any help? OK, awesome, no problem, join our group to share how you did it and encourage others with your success story. The more people we help in life the more successful we become by our own right, but I want you to keep one thing in mind ... sometimes, even though we "have it under control" for a while, we can end up back sliding. As a member of a weight loss group, you increase your potential to help others and not backslide, though also have the freedom to dive right in for support or watch along on hard days, too. Food addiction and other bad habits have a horrible way of creeping back, so double your long term success by joining us. This is especially true for a lot people new to low carb or trendy diets, as well as those of you taking Skinny Fiber or Skinny Body Max without any help because you're worried about what others will think.
So, join our group today ... the members are here for you in good or bad times.
Statistic Say You Will Do Better With Weight Loss Support!
Statistics /Studies show that people are more successful at losing weight / sticking to their weight loss program when they are part of a support group (social group) or better yet working on weight loss with personal friends / family as part of the group. Here are some study conclusions for your review:
"A low-cost program offering treatment of indefinite duration produced large long-term weight losses and may be suitable for widespread replication." 1
"The main finding in this study was that recruiting participants with a team of three friends and treating them with a strong social support intervention decreased the number of dropouts and markedly increased the percentage of participants who maintained their weight loss in full, over a six-month follow-up period when the social support intervention was still in effect. The social support manipulation was somewhat effective in this study and improved the maintenance of weight loss for both participants recruited alone and those recruited with friends." 2
"The structured commercial weight loss program provided modest weight loss but more than self-help over a 2-year period". 3

Who do you turn to for weight loss support?
MY STORY ...
I used to tell everyone when I started a weight loss plan. My friends were usually supportive, but through the years, I noticed that certain people were not helpful in my plans and progress. Sometimes it was friends bringing homemade goodies or not showing up to work out with me. Sometimes, it felt like family had no consideration of my goals. For example, when my children and I were younger, I noticed that my mother was totally non-responsive to my weight loss needs. She was awesome at judging and commenting at times, but not willing to help with adjustments that I needed. She was great at making the kids different foods at meals, so I know that it was not that she didn't want to cook for each person. In fact, she always cooked a bunch of different things on Sundays, so that she had meals prepared for the week and sent some home us, too. Yet, she rarely made meals or additions to the menu that would benefit my low carb / low fat needs and always had a lot of processed junk in the kitchen, too. It felt discouraging and it really hurt me, especially when my very young cousin was like 50 pounds at 2 years old and she did not adjust that child's meals to not contribute to her obesity. Now that I look back, I think that my mother just wanted us to eat the comfort meals as normal because it made her feel happy and what was characteristic in our family over the years. Still, I learned to say no to coming over for family meals when I was working hard to lose weight.
Later in life, especially after having our baby, I went through this again with my husband and have learned NOT to tell my husband when I am purposely avoiding certain foods. It seems like he loads the kitchen with even more sweets and carbs than normal when he knows that I am avoiding them; like a subconscious sabotage that really irks me. I used to take over the shopping loading us with tons of fruits and vegetables, but it was making the kids miserable. I eventually learned not mention my weight loss plans to him and work my meals around theirs. It is not easy, but Skinny Fiber and my external weight loss support system helped.
So, I got in the habit of not turning to certain people when I was trying to lose weight ... Even though I thought that I could handle it on my own, it ended up each time that the lack of support wore my weight loss success. This is how I ended up surrounding myself with people that were having the same experiences or sharing with others struggling in their weight loss issues, so that we all could support one another.
I am sharing my experience in case you can relate.
It's not that friends and loved ones don't want you to lose weight, but that they are used to eating and doing certain things with you that they don't want to stop ... WHATEVER THE REASON ... If you have people that are close to you and don't tell them about your weight loss plans because they are no help, you have to find some type of support because your weight loss success is less realistic if you do not have listening ears during challenging times, health information, weight loss tips and encouragement available to you.
WHO DO YOU TURN TO FOR WEIGHT LOSS SUPPORT?
Maybe you have personal friends that can join you in weight loss and / or provide motivation for you. If so, that's awesome and I encourage you to meet for exercise, meal planning and share with one another what has been working or not. On the other hand, I know that some of you have already been there and were unsuccessful with a friend as your weight loss buddy --- that is why you are trying to lose weight again, therefore I am suggesting different weight loss support.
It doesn't matter whether you are just getting started, have been doing good for a while or at the breaking point! Weight loss support is important and social support is especially helpful for maintaining your momentum, taking weight off, obtaining valuable resources, ideas and long term weight loss goals (keeping the weight off)! Weight Loss Support is not only important for your personal motivation, accountability and results, but also beneficial to others in the group for who you share information with, too.
Statistic show that you will do better with weight loss if you do it as part of a group and / or have personalized support. It is your back up for when you feel like expressing the challenges or not (sometimes it's just as simple as seeing success stories and struggles; reading along whether you mention anything at all). The information shared by the members will remind you of the foods, health tips, logical and emotional factors to deal with daily and teach you how so many others are accomplishing weight loss goals. If everyone participates, then the group will benefit even more for weight loss support.
You should find local weight loss groups and participate according to their schedules. Whether it be a weight in and guidance group, exercise meet up or something similar, it will be worth it. I also invite you to join our online weight loss group and become active in it over time ...
