Using social media can also help you make better choices. If you have followers that are watching for your updates, you may be less likely to eat dessert or skip a workout if it means there won’t be such positive results to post. Also, friends, fam, and followers can give you advice or tips if you find yourself in a slump.

There are also handy apps that can help you upload when on the go. Snap a photo of your meal to track your calories or tweet a 3-mile run from your phone. If you already have a known presence on Facebook be sure to regularly post updates so your friends will be in the loop (they may even join-in so you can start your own biggest loser).
