When you’re trying to eat healthy, exercise, and make lifestyle changes that are necessary to reach your goals, support from your loved ones can be a huge source of strength.

But what if your friends and family don’t support your goals?

In a series of June Topic Videos for The Mindset Membership, Ilana and her husband Noah talk about the challenges of trying to lose weight if the people around you aren’t onboard.

Ilana starts where it all begins — at home.

In one of the videos, she and Noah share how they got on the same page with her weight-loss goals and how they figured out what worked — and what didn’t.

For Noah, understanding why Ilana wanted to lose weight and seeing how his actions and words affected her helped him understand why his support was important.

For Ilana, being open and clear about her needs and why she needed to put herself first was a key part of their success as a couple, not just hers.

Living a healthier lifestyle can help you be the best version of yourself, which benefits everyone around you.

By making your loved ones a part of your success, it opens up a whole new way for them to help support your goals.

Some of the other topics that Ilana and Noah tackle:

  • How to find a balance between enjoying special occasions with family and friends and staying true to the 2B Mindset principles.
  • What to say to a partner who doesn’t support your weight-loss goals.

And Ilana and Noah speak from experience — after getting married, they both gained weight. When they started being honest about what they wanted and the changes they needed to make, they ended up losing a collective 38 pounds!

With the June Monthly Topic videos, you’ll learn how to build a healthy support system with your friends and family that will help you hit your nutrition goals.
