Help Your Loved One Lose Weight

Help him/her to achieve that goal: To lose weight

You can help your loved one reach their weight loss goals

It should be easy to want to lose weight when you think you have hit rock bottom. What’s harder is when other people, especially a loved one, have hit it and they are not even aware of it. What’s worse is when they know their condition very well but could not get themselves to do something about it. That’s when you know you should be doing some action yourself. Being on the dieter’s side might appear difficult, but once you know what to do, the dieter could go a long way with your help.

You are not a coach, but a cheerleader

Once you’ve gotten your loved one to realize their need to lose weight, your role does not include finding faults in everything he does. What’s best is focusing on what he does right and cheering him on to continue the good work. Say, when he has reached a short-term goal, applaud him, or if he has not, applaud him still for trying. All he needs is a little appreciation on the efforts he has exerted.

Actively participate in their program, too

Be part of the experience

Be part of the experience

It’s always motivating if you someone else joins with you in achieving your goals. Be that someone for your loved one. This means you also have to try the things they are trying, like the diet foods they are eating or the exercise program they are taking up at the gym. There is definitely no harm in trying. You are not only giving your loved one a push to fitness; you are also keeping yourself healthy, as well.

You care about the person, not just his weight

Sooner or later, the dieter may think you are only urging him to lose weight because you do not want him to look fat. While this may be true, show him that you are not only after his weight loss, but that you care about that person entirely. The reason you are encouraging him to lose weight is that you care about his total health – in all of its aspects.

Be aggressive in your support

Encourage them to stay healthy

Encourage them to stay healthy

Being “aggressive” means you should not wait for the dieter to come after you for help. Let them know firsthand that you are always there when you need them. Even when he does not call or text you to update you with his progress, be the one to check up on him. Ask him how he’s doing and how far he has gone, not just with the food or the dieting, but with life in general. This will help him realize that your care is genuine and that you are thinking about them and not their weight.


As much as it is hard for you to keep your loved one back on the track to a healthy lifestyle, it is hard for him as well. So the most important thing that you should remember is to stay positive. Don’t give your loved one a reason for him to give up too easily. Be with him in his accomplishments and failures and be that support that they need.

Small Business 101: Building Strong Social Relationships

Start a small business

Start a small business

In a survey conducted by Web.com in August 2013, researchers have found that small businesses are not taking advantage of building customer relationships online. The survey, which included both small business owners and consumers, revealed that small businesses are still reliant on the face-to-face interaction they have with consumers. According to David Brown, Chairman and CEO of Web.com, consumers are now calling for small businesses to start building relationships online as well. How will your business do that?

Customers prefer to deal with small businesses

Dealing with large business entities can take much of a customer’s time. While it is widely accepted that large companies offer competitive products and have access to innovation systems, they lack one thing that customers are after: the personal touch in doing business.

What small businesses should do: Small businesses need to start creating opportunities to foster strong social relationships. Building a website is a good start. As a business’ website slowly becomes popular, more people will notice. And because more people appreciate the personal touch offered by small businesses, word will naturally spread around.

Customers prefer to do business with small businesses that are present online

Among the consumers included in the survey, 83% said that they prefer going to businesses that have their own website.

What small businesses should do: Related to the first point, small businesses who build their own website and who start building their social media presence are more likely to attract customers. A website and a social media page is an indication of credibility as information about products, services, and the companies are accessible to consumers.

Business owners overestimate the capabilities of their social media presence

Business owners think that having a website and a social media page is enough. They fail to consider the reward they can get by maintaining their online pages: customer engagement.

What small businesses should do: Having a static page or a social media page that rarely gets updated does not encourage business. Majority of the customers in the survey said that they think that small businesses should do more when it comes to their online assets. This means more content, more opportunities for interaction, and more personalization in engagement.

Business owners who take care of their online assets (i.e. website, social media pages) have better chances of driving sales

If a small business’ website or social media page is what exactly customers are looking for, they are more likely to check the business out, refer it to their friends, look for others who previously dealt with the same business, and purchase a product.

What small businesses should do: Small businesses need to work on establishing one quality that sets their physical business and online business presence apart from the rest: consistency. Consistency translates to “what your store offers should reflect on your website and other social media pages.” This helps inform customers that what they see is what they get (and maybe more) without even setting foot in an actual store.

Small businesses are yet to embrace the idea that their online presence will bring them profitable results in the long run

Citing concerns over costs and business performance, some business owners are still reliant on the brick-and-mortar approach to selling. A few of them are considering the idea of tapping the Internet while very few have their own websites now and are profiting from it.

Keep in contact with your customers... They'll provide feedback

What small businesses should do: Majority of the business should follow what the chosen few are doing when it comes to going online. If a business goes online, it will receive more exposure. If a business taps social media networks, customer engagement can take place. Finally, if a small business gets listed online, it will be indexed. This means that it will become a part of the World Wide Web and it will never leave.

In sum, building strong social relationships starts by establishing online presence. Once done, an opportunity for engagement is created. If engagement ensues, more customers will be drawn to the business. Soon, a business will see long-term growth by being consistent to its promise, to its brand, and to its customers.
