Two people are better than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NLT
During this challenge I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and make friends with other challengers. Everyone is going through the same things you are going through. Don't suffer by yourself, instead find a partner during your journey someone to be your cheerleader and you be their cheerleader. The reason most of us became overweight is because we chose to stay isolated from our friends and family and thought we could handle everything on our own. Well you see where that got us.
Don't let your mind separate you from other people during this time. Encourage others and you too will be encouraged. Have the courage to conquer your fears and reach out to others and they will do the same to you.
During the holiday season this is a very tough time for many people, due to stress over money during the holidays and some people have lost their jobs. Focus on things to be thankful for, your goals, and do not let stress bring you down during this time of the year. Do not fall back into bad habits, now more than ever you need support and encouragement from others.
Those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25 NLT
