very much so! i was desperate to have someone close to workout and eat right with me, but nobody really jumped in. so i got started by myself, and everyday that i get compliments on losing weight or looking thinner, it gives me that extra boost i don't really get. it keeps me going, even though i think it would be so nice to have a partner

Yes, it does, a kind word does miracles. After hearing a compliment, you put a little more effort to keep fishing for more compliments.

I think so. Knowing there are others out there cheering you on gives me a good feeling and makes me want to make them proud of me through my successful efforts.

I think it depends on who is providing it - others or myself

I think the best encouragement comes with in but it is nice to get help from others who have been where you are.
Try to beat your PB every day but don't knock yourself out if you fail

Of course it helps, but you also have to believe in yourself

I think it helps at times, but you have to encourage yourself as well.
