Finding Support Groups Online for Weight Loss

List: Posted: 02/16/11

Are you looking to achieve your weight loss goals but find that it can be hard without a personal trainer to give you advice and cheer you on?  Are you trying to find support groups but your schedule doesn’t really give you the time you need to attend local in-person weight loss meetings?  If so, then one thing that you may find beneficial is to join an online weight loss support group.  

One thing to consider when looking for online weight loss support groups is the size of the group.  You want to find a place with a large number of members who can help answer your questions.  You also want to look for a group that is courteous and helpful.  Try reading through forums before signing up.  You don’t want a weight loss group that feels like high school or that seems to shun new members, and you certainly don’t want a group that will disparage your goals or give you a hard time if you miss a goal.

Another thing to look at is the resources offered by your support group.  Do they offer weight loss tips from real experts?  Do people share their success and failure stories?  Are there group members with expertise in the field, such as dietitians or weight loss specialists?  These can be incredible resources, and you will find many support groups that offer a great deal of help and information to make the process easier for you.
