You know how much better an experience is when it's shared. Research shows the same is true when you're trying to lose weight. Multiple studies find you lose weight more effectively when you have the support of a tribe of people. It makes such a huge difference that experts say social support can make or break weight loss goals.

That's (just) one reason why joining group classes for exercises to lose weight is smart!
