Having support systems when you're creating a healthy lifestyle is CRITICAL. Though family is important to share in your health journey everyone doesn't have that support. If that's the case, create your own support system by incorporating church members, friends, co-workers, other sparkers, support groups, strangers on the same journey, and the like. Your quality of life while making small & big changes can be greatly amplified with support of your endeavors.
Although, I totally agree that message boards provide an AMAZING support system - I have been floored by how much support I have gotten from a simple "I need Help" on a Team Huddle board. SparkPeople is so vast and has so much to offer... it is best to try and get support and find ways to support others by checking out all avenues through the community!! 9252
Having lovely supporting people ... who encourage you even when things are down and bad.
People like Mr Beatley who fully supports me and encourages me to push on. As well as all the awesome people on sparkpeople would keep in touch and offer support, love and guidance. I would have fallen and stayed off the wagon without everyone backing me! THANK YOU ALL!! 502
