10 Ways People Over 40 Can Lose Weight – Part 4

Do Something Kind for Someone Else Every Day

Helping others is one of the great joys in life. And the fact is, if we’re too busy to lend a hand, chances are that we aren’t living up to our potential.

Helping others allows us to connect with the people around us and shows us different sides of ourselves. It reminds us of what really matters and refocuses our energy on the greater good. It almost always changes our opinion of ourselves for the better.

That’s because, when we use our talents and resources for the benefit of others, we are able to see ourselves in a different light. It lets us appreciate both what we have and what we are capable of doing, both of which are powerful motivators.

Make Friends with Five People Who Inspire You to Lose Weight

The people you surround yourself with define you. My Dad told me many times growing up, “You are who you hang with.” And even as an adult that rings true.

If you choose hardworking, motivated friends who are trying to better themselves and their lives, chances are that’s where you will put your energy too. I think we have some pretty awesome members here at FCG. Might be a great place to start. Wink, wink…

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” —Jim Rohn

Look at the company you keep. Do your friends build you up? Do they motivate you to be your best self? Do they bring out the best in you? Do they encourage you to make healthier choices? Do they support your weight loss journey?

If you find yourself surrounded by people who are lazy and drain your energy or who gossip, compete, and criticize, perhaps it’s time to move on. It’s ok to love those people but take the opportunity to look around and choose five people you admire to add to your social circle. What about them inspires you? Ask them questions and learn from them.
