My best friend. We've known each other for over 25+ years. I get plenty of support from my family. but for certain things, I will go to my friend first instead of them.

I really had to find it within myself. I don't get much support from home. But that's okay, if it is to be, it is up to me. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Honestly, I come here for the most support as we all fully understand this journey and the commitment it takes. My boyfriend is very supportive and is committed to eating healthy with me as he, too, would like to improve his lifestyle. But for the most part SP is the most helpful, love this place :-)

Depends what sort of support. For most things my first port of call is God. There are others I will talk to - family or friends, or my pastor, depending on what the issue is.

I'm still looking for that person or people. Kind of discouraging because I'm "there" for other people. It's like no one cares.

I mainly come here for support. My kids are supportive but I would rather not engage them in my journey at this point though they do make comments and are always being complimentary. I do this for me and i would rather not get into it with them. I have been reading alot about how to be successful and just working the plan and creating new habits and that seems to be working for me. emoticon

Sadly, I have no family or friends (outside of SparkFriends) who I can turn to for support. Not one of them is truly interested in improving the health quality of their life, and while they may like /love me, they're no help.

Thank heavens for the SparkPeople community where I'm encouraged when I'm down, kicked in the backside (in a virtual sense) when I'm being whiny or lazy, or applauded when I reach a goal.

Suck it up and one day you won't have to suck it in!!!



Hebrews 12:11
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

Life doesn't have a remote, you have to get up and change it yourself.


If it is not challenging you, then it is not changing you.
