The Buddy System
At last night's meeting, we talked about the ways that having a "buddy" can help you achieve weight loss goals and stay on track. As you know from reading this blog, luckily I have a network of buddies to tap into, which is exactly what I did.
Today, even after two weeks of disappointing numbers at the scale, I was tempted to forgo the healthy lunch I had packed this morning and, instead, hit up the Falafel truck at work for some delicious Mediterranean fare.
I sent this plea to my fellow Winos:
"I brought my lunch today but really want Falafel from the truck at work today. What to do? Help, buddies!"
I received the following support:
"Look up how many points the whole thing would be and then decide if it's worth it."
"Don't do it! The cheddar & sour cream baked Ruffles we brought today are the bomb!"
"You know what to do! Eat your lunch. Reward yourself with a Falafel next week if you were good this week!"
Lunch from home for 7.5 points
