Can You Be an Influence for Weight Change? As we discuss these oft-overlooked factors that impact weight, it may have already occurred to you that many of them are the very things that link us to the people we work with, know, and love. What this tells us is clear: Not only are we on the receiving end of the influence, but we, too, can have a positive effect on those around us. As it turns out, this is precisely what happened for Gabriela and Rod. What we know about the spread of healthy behaviors through a social network strongly suggests that Rod caught a healthy “bug” from his wife, which he in turn passed on to his friend Larry at work.
Sure, it is possible for us to view these changes in isolation. What would be the first thing you would say if these people were your friends or colleagues? ” Yet of these three people, Gabriela was the one whose healthy actions preceded those of the people connected to her in some way. So given that everyone lost weight in this story, we have two choices as to how to interpret exactly what happened. On the one hand, we could chalk it all up to happy coincidence. But while this is possible, it does not seem terribly likely.
I can’t remember. ” Before long, their lives and their lifestyles had intertwined. For ten years they did everything together—shared meals, watched movies, spent time doing what they loved. And they also gradually gained weight together. By 2009, Rod tipped the scales at 242 pounds—officially obese. Gabriela weighed 158, which made her overweight for her height. Both were taking prescription medicines for high blood pressure and cholesterol by this time. Rod admitted that he showed up at the doctor’s office “quite a bit” for chest pains, a very concerning sign.
