A support system is so important when you're trying to change habits! I found that out first hand a couple years ago with an old relationship. I never stuck to anything because I had no support. But things have definitely changed!
I would be more than happy to be a check-in buddy with all of you, if you're interested. I have a group on Facebook for these specific purposes!
Hope to hear back from you :)

I was having a problem exercising consistently too. I have a calendar in my bedroom. Each time I do a work out I put a sticker on it --like a blue ribbon sticker to show that I have completed my exercise goal that day. At the end of the month, I can look at the calendar and see how often I have met my goals. Then I get a sense of accomplishment. You can take it further and reward yourself for making two weeks straight by buying yourself something fun. I like to buy fingernail polish as my reward.
I'm still learning this program but I would be glad to be a support buddy.
I've recently lost close to 10 pounds by due to a medicine that kills my appetite and makes me nauseous whenever I eat. It seems to be lessening each week I take it, which is a big relief! My problem is with consistently exercising. I would love to give and get support. I have no support in my off-line life.
