I don't know where I picked it up...maybe it' something I learned in Girl Scouts, or as part of fire safety, or maybe it's just one of the societal lessons we all know cause it's ingrained in our culture, but where ever it came from the truth remains... in life it's always safest to implement the buddy system! I find this fact to also be true when it comes to healthy weight loss and exercise! There is nothing like having someone in your corner...keeping you accountable and encouraging you in your journey! It's beyond helpful and at times it pushes you to do the very things wouldn't do otherwise!
Life teaches us that no man is an island...so I encourage you, if you haven't done so yet, Find yourself a buddy, a support group, or some sort of community with whom you can share your journey. Cause the old saying is true....Together Everyone Achieves More!
