The 30-Day Weight Loss Challenge That Actually Works

Day 29: Cook for a friend

Your friends can be an essential support system in every aspect of your life. Having a close friend to confide in and rely on can be invaluable when you’re going through a challenging transition, such as a lifestyle change to lose weight and get in shape. A friend can cheer you up when you’re feeling discouraged and provide advice and encouragement to help you along the way. It’s important to express gratitude to your friends and let them know that you appreciate having them by your side.

Think of a friend who’s been particularly supportive throughout this challenge. Surprising that person with a home-cooked meal is a thoughtful way to express your gratitude and to celebrate your own progress, as well. They say that joy is doubled when it’s shared, so celebrate your weight-loss by preparing a healthy meal to enjoy with a friend. This is a great opportunity to try out a healthy, new recipe as well.
