    I recently started running and I trained for a half marathon in a group setting. I cannot tell how much difference it made exercising in a group .

    emoticon I share with who ever will listen. My close family are my main support!
NELSONDEBRA 3/2/2012 11:24:00 PM

    This is a hard one for me. I have goals but fear usually keeps me from sharing them with people in my face to face life. I can do it on the computer, in face to face parts of my life I am timid.
MOMSUE1 3/2/2012 10:14:00 PM

    My family has been so supportive that my daughter checks on me everyday to make sure that I am meeting the goals I set daily!! She pushes me when my Fibro acts up or am tired, reminding me that it is better to work through the pain and she is right. She is also right behind me with my food daily and that is why I do it the day before so she watches out for me too!

    So true..there is a new team for this 75+ pounds to lose...someone will join.
BLUEC5KITTEN 3/2/2012 10:21:00 AM

    I believe in applying personal accountability to all aspects of my life. I think that is what makes one so driven to excel. These are valid and sage words by which to live! Thanks!
