Weight Loss Tips - Take Care of Your Buddy

 Take Care of Your Buddy

Perhaps you and your buddy have minimal contact or perhaps you play a significant support role for each other.

No matter what your communication pattern with your buddy, make it a priority to show ongoing appreciation to your buddy.

Here are some suggestions on how to acknowledge your buddy:
• Send your buddy one or several thank you cards;
• Send your buddy healthy recipes you’ve tried and enjoyed;
• Publicly thank your buddy on Facebook or Twitter;
• Make a contribution to your buddy’s favorite charity;
• Send your buddy a high energy music CD;
• Send your buddy a motivational audio recording made by you;
• Send your buddy a piece of workout equipment or clothing;
• Send your buddy a new home workout program;
• Get your buddy’s birthday and send a birthday card;
• Send your buddy a gift card to a health food store;
• If you’re in the same city, take your buddy to breakfast or lunch;
• Send your buddy some protein bars, recovery drink, or shaker cup
• Send a photo or video clip of yourself working out
• Ask your buddy for feedback on how your relationship is working for them and what you both can do to improve your interaction and support
• Give your buddy extra time to thoroughly assess how they are doing to meet their goals and what specific support they need from you.
• Send your buddy a fitness article and/or magazine subscription.

Take the lead to take care of your buddy without any expectation of getting something in return.
