People need people, there’s no doubt about it. Isolation is not a fun thing, nor is solitary confinement.17 But you can achieve a lot on your own without the needless input from others. You can achieve more in terms of helping yourself without the help of others – i.e., by relying only on yourself and God. For an endeavor such as transforming your body, where the only one who stands to gain directly is you, it makes more sense to rely on the person with the most to gain from your success – you – and the only person you can always trust – God.
Don’t get me wrong. Most things in life require a team effort. Teamwork is important when you have a shared goal with others, such as at work, in sports, in the military. But your goal of transforming your body is a goal you share with no one else. It is your body only and you are the only one who cares. No one else wants what is best for you. They want what is best for them. So, be careful about relying on others or asking for help from others insofar as transforming your body. There is nothing in it for them, so don’t expect their help, even if they pretend to be encouraging.
Rely on yourself and God only. Even your spouse or significant other may be insecure and jealous or more comfortable the way you are now. Transform your body first and then, after you’ve done it (flying under the radar, so to speak) you can give them the loving assurance that they have nothing to fear. They won’t lose you just because you lost weight and transformed your body. You might even motivate them to make positive changes in their lives also.
