well my husband either just doesnt understand or just doesnt care. how i stay motivated is by calling my mom and dad. they always have supported me, and going to the lean support group. what i like about this website is that everyone here is like family they dont judge you of how much you weigh, where all in the same boat together but with a huge family behind us telling us that WE CAN DO THIS, WE ARE NOT ALONE... Thank you to everyone... Im always here if anyone needs a shoulder..

Having lovely supporting people ... who encourage you even when things are down and bad.
People like Mr Beatley who fully supports me and encourages me to push on. As well as all the awesome people on sparkpeople would keep in touch and offer support, love and guidance. I would have fallen and stayed off the wagon without everyone backing me! THANK YOU ALL!! 502
Having support systems when you're creating a healthy lifestyle is CRITICAL. Though family is important to share in your health journey everyone doesn't have that support. If that's the case, create your own support system by incorporating church members, friends, co-workers, other sparkers, support groups, strangers on the same journey, and the like. Your quality of life while making small & big changes can be greatly amplified with support of your endeavors.
I wanted to loose weight before getting pregnant so I bought the wii and the biggest loser game. I worked out and stopped eating all the junk I was and I lost 40 pounds in two months. I managed to keep most of it off even after having a baby. I am 4 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight and he is 3 weeks old.
Support, support, support and keep up with it. It is hard but well worth it.
