How to Make Social Media Work for You in Your Weight Loss and Fitness Efforts.


Okay, it’s common knowledge that social media is a powerful tool for commercial purposes. If you are perusing this article, you probably know what Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace are. If you don’t, you should visit those pages and catch up for a few hours. It will take a few hours, not minutes. Simply put, they will drain that much of your time.

You may be wondering what those services do with physical fitness. Aside from that, some individuals MAKE COMMENTS about fitness but don’t. The most popular and pertinent content on the web can be easily accessed thanks to social bookmarking sites like Digg, but what about YOU? How can you make the most of these resources to move forward?

Then my brilliant plan will come in handy. The first step in mastering social media is realizing that it’s all about socializing and being open and honest with your audience. But if you’re ready to give it a shot, I do not doubt that your achievements will soar. Those who know me well know that I am CONSTANTLY on the lookout for methods to increase my prospects of success in physical exercise.

Let’s jump right in. The first step is to select the appropriate instrument. Pick a tool, or several tools, if that’s what you’re into, and don’t stress about what you’ll be using them for just yet. Twitter is where it’s at… As a result of its accessibility from mobile devices, its 140-character restriction per tweet, and the fact that you can have an unlimited number of followers. This indicates that it is brief, straightforward, and to the point. Perfect!

A MySpace journal or a Facebook fan page are good options if you want to get the ball rolling but need more time. In contrast to your regular Facebook account, which is restricted to a maximum of 5,000 friends, the fan page allows you to have infinite followers. (how lame).

As you may have guessed by now, one crucial part of my little concept is the ability for others to FOLLOW what you are doing. You’d be correct. Here’s Step 2: Make an email roster of everyone you know. Include loved ones, acquaintances, and former flames. Send a text to whoever you like. Now that your target audience is narrowed down, blast them all with an email outlining your plans and providing a link where they can join you in your endeavors. If they are unfamiliar with social media or the chosen instrument, you should take the time to educate them.

For this reason, you might write in the email:

I’m entirely unfit and know I need to do something about it to extend my life. I’m all set to confront facts, but I’ve stumbled upon a fantastic suggestion from FJ that I can’t implement without your assistance. I plan to tweet several times daily about my progress in the exercise, including how often and how much I weigh. And I hope you all will come along for the ride. If I ever get off track, I’ll be sure to tweet about it and welcome any words of support you can send me. Or, if you prefer, a smack in the face. Just click this URL…

To continue with… To succeed, it’s essential that as many of your friends and family see you “walk the path,” When you’re this open and honest about your actions, the social media thing transforms into social pressure. The social pressure you feel to achieve is healthy and should be embraced. Just picture your significant other reading your text about skipping exercises at work. Then, later that night, you’ll have to explain to them. Is that something you really want to experience?

Imagine, on the other hand, that your 40 followers saw your post about how you saw a five-pound loss on the scale this morning. How many replies and DMs do you anticipate getting? You can count on them to be encouraging. By the way, the detractors will start to come in as your following grows… Don’t give in like a weakling. Jealousy is typically the root of negative feedback, which is quite flattering if you ask me.

So, to sum up, here are the guidelines you must adhere to for this to be successful:

1 – Integrity. You’re squandering your time if you don’t commit to being open and forthright about what you’re doing. Even though no one will find out that you skipped Wednesday’s dinners in favor of a tweet, you will know, and your body will be the final proof. It’s human to make a few errors now and then; learning from them and improving is essential.

The caliber of one’s adherents. Having 50,000 fans who couldn’t give a toss about you or your cause is pointless. Create a new Twitter account if you feel you need to. You must rely on people you already know or have encountered in person. The point is that you need supporters who enjoy your concept, are enthusiastic about it, and are invested in your success and happiness in some manner.

Being Detailed Third. Even though Twitter has a character restriction, that doesn’t mean you can’t send out two tweets at once. Don’t be so vague that no one understands what you’re up to, but that’s not an excuse to go on a tweeting binge. How about changing that to “Worked out my back, biceps, and forearms at the gym”? Added another 5% of resilience. Get it? Good]

Share what you know. [Yes, keep in regular contact with the people following you. What they say, how they respond, or who starts the discussion is irrelevant to me. This is SOCIAL MEDIA, not LONER MEDIA, so keep that in mind. Start a journal if you don’t feel like talking to people now.

You now have a potent tool in the form of social media to guarantee your motivation to improve your health. The more excuses I can help you avoid, the better off you will be because let’s be honest here… When you have nowhere else to turn but inward, what other choice do you have? Want to get escape from your issues? You should confront them squarely. This method can also cover loose ends and guarantee that each day’s objectives are met.
