Have a Supportive Network and Environment
Eduardo Grunvald, MD, program director at UC San Diego's Weight Management Program, told POPSUGAR the biggest indicator of weight-loss success: having a supportive environment.
This support system could be from a weight-loss program, dietitian, health educator, or obesity medicine doctor or clinic. It's also important to have a supportive environment at home. If you make an effort to eat healthy and work out regularly but your spouse still keeps junk food in the house and never exercises, you're setting yourself up for failure. Make sure your friends, family, and partner are aware of your weight-loss goals, and strive to spend most of your time around people who are supportive.
