YES! My mom and dad are doing this with me. My husband is one of the lucky ones who can eat all day and never gain a pound so it is hard for him to understand, but he is supporting me the best he can.

No, not at all! That's why I joined SparkPeople. I'm a divorced Mom and the lack of support and struggles were what had led me to a large weight gain. Food was what I came to lead on for my emotional crutch.

Yes! My husband is awesome about supporting our new lifestyle. We recently started eating a plant-based diet together, and we both love it! I don't think I could do it if he were fighting it, but he was so excited (and still is) to make the change and educate our friends and families about our eating habits :)

I have a few very supportive friends and coworkers, but not in my immediate family. My kids and husband don't seem to understand my need to be healthier.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Nothing tastes or feels as good as being fit and slim feel!

I buffet my body and make it my slave!

When I eat healthy I enjoy my food all day!

I fortunately do, for the most part. My hubby and I are working on encouraging one another on our goals. Although, yesterday he asked if I wanted ice cream. When I said, "no" he asked if it would bother me if he had some. It was thoughtful of him and I said so, but I need him to not even ask me. I also have a friend who is on the same journey as me. I don't think I could do it without a support group.

yes I do. Having recently joined Weight Watchers I get lots of wonderful support and help from them. My Hubby has finally decided HE wants to get healthier and lose a few pounds. So we are there for each other.

It started out just being my spark friends...but my hubby and mother in law have seen that I wont quit or give up and they started supporting me.

I finally have a support system in my journey to becoming healthy! My family and my boyfriend no only support me, but they all keep me accountable and motivate me when I need it!

If you don't have a support system that is really working for you, that is okay! This is the first time in my life I have had one and I love it so much!

If you don't have one though, send me a message! I can support you and keep you accountable. After all, isn't this what Sparkpeople is here for?!

If you do have one-who is it? What do they do for you?!
