When you are working towards a goal, especially one that may seem daunting at times, it always helps having an inspiration, someone to look up to and find guidance from. Having a role model can help you stay motivated to lose weight.

So who would be a good role model? That super skinny model on the cover of a glossy magazine? The filtered and photo shopped influencer on your Instagram feed?

No… It is vital that you pick the right kind of role model to keep yourself motivated.

Hanging a picture of a supermodel on your fridge will not motivate you over time. Instead, find a role model that you can easily relate to.

Having a relatable and positive role model will help keep you motivated.

Where do you find these role models?

A friend: if you know a friend who has lost a lot of weight this can be your inspiration.

A support group: a support group like TLC-Trim Buddies offer you many potential role models… These people who have completed their TLC-Programs or who are making good progress can be excellent role models and inspiration to you,

Blogs and articles: You can also look for inspirational blogs or stories about people who have successfully lost weight. The TLC-Blog and past Client success stories on www.tlcforwellbeing.com serve as an excellent source of inspiration.

Your TLC Coach: most of the TLC Coaches have successfully achieved their goals or have helped others achieve their goals. They can be an excellent source of inspiration and good role models for you on your journey.

Find your role model and share and read their stories when you feel in need of inspiration.
