    MY SUPPORT COMES FROM SP. THANK GOODNESS YOU ARE IN MY LIFE!! THE ONLY OTHER REAL SUPPORT I HAVE IS MY DOG...SHE HAS GOTTEN IN THE HABIT OF WALKING AND WILL STARE AT YOU UNTIL YOU GO!!!
  • I get a huge amount of support from my Spark friends but my biggest contributor is my hubby. He goes walking with me and always asks how it is proceeding. He would do anything I asked if I told him it would help with my journey. I know that I am lucky with that:)
  • Most of my support comes from SPark
  • I have the best support in the world.My wife is awesome!
  • I like to have support from friends and family, but my motivation and support has to come from myself. People tend to let you down sometimes. This site is a great form of support.

    I have a large support group around me, friends constantly calling me and asking if I reached any new goals and some interested in the program itself.
  • support is so important and SP is a great support system!
  • Having a goal buddy makes a difference.
  • SparkPeople has been the best support group!
  • I have been a part of many support groups over the years and even went to weight watchers years ago.
    As long as I was in a group I did well but I had a hard time on my own. I am so glad that I found SP and
    a lot of support here even though it's not person to person. We all have the same goals to lose weight and get fit.
  • My DH is a SP member ,but sometimes he shakes his head at me saying I am to hard on myself. I need to keep my discipline or I will fall flat into my bad habits. So we agree to disagree on what each of us does on our weight loss journey
  • My hubby is my exercise buddy 7x a week.
  • I find that me & the hubby support one another but we do it differently. He is a gym person, I myself like to be by myself as I am pouring and dripping sweat...

    God bless & be encouraged.

  • Oh, and starting back today, Sparkpeople! You people are the best! I had to read other comments to remind me that I forgot SP. I am a firm believer in this site!
  • For now, my WW meetings are my support. And friends who encourage me, exercise with me, family who congratulate my small victories, and do not sabotage my efforts.
