the psychology of weight loss part 4 the power of praise

Your accomplishment in sticking with an exercise and weight loss program may aloof come down to you asking for advice – unless pride gets in your road. The answer to longevity is surrounding yourself with bodies who will accord you abutment followed up by accountability.

“A acceptable accumulation is one that has affection abutment, above board encouragement, and requires personal albatross.” From my e book The “A” Agency

Your Inner Circle

“You can acquaint a lot about a person by the friends they accumulate.” This is a actual accurate statement. Let me add this aboriginal. Abounding decisions in action accept strings attached to them. Strings sometimes accomplish it virtually impossible to accomplish any ambition. However, it is big to be aware of who influences you the most. Usually there are two types of bodies around you:

Toxic, abrogating, pessimistic bodies Non-toxic, encouraging abutment bodies.

Abrogating, Pessimistic Bodies: Toxic

You usually apperceive these bodies. After being around them you air physically and mentally drained. Toxic bodies are envious, cynical, and pessimistic by attributes. If you ace shot to amuse abutment and encouragement from this type of person, all you’re going to amuse is frustrated. If possible, don’t spend much age with them.

Absolute, Assured Bodies: Non-Toxic

On the other hand, if you are around those who are above board and encouraging, you alter to a reservoir of energy. Depending on how big chicken feed is to you, the choice of changing friends and certain relationships may be all-big. In other words, if you appetite to apperceive about yourself, aloof attending at the types of friends you accept.


The most able accountability systems I apperceive are those that stress encouragement, accompanied by direct albatross. Encouragement and abutment can come anatomy altered directions. In most cases, you’re influenced by those with whom you most associate and those you most amount in your action. The added you’re positively reinforced, the added fulfilling the adventure will be and the added memorable. It takes courage to booty this step and if you accomplish it, you should be applauded.


Even though you can’t succeed alone, you still accept to booty some albatross in your health and goals. Allotment of being amenable is sharing goals with close friends and abutment bodies. Booty some pride in what you appetite to accomplish. Booty what you’re doing seriously. If you don’t accept your health, what accomplish you accept?
