It gets really hard to eat healthy when everyone around you is snacking on chips and cookies. Lucky for me I have a great support system at home as well as work. I work with 3 other women and all of us share to same goal to eat healthy. So every day we have "snack time" all of us bring a piece of fruit or some crackers with cheese and share them. No junk food this makes is so much easier not to have to deal with temptations.

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.
Although, I totally agree that message boards provide an AMAZING support system - I have been floored by how much support I have gotten from a simple "I need Help" on a Team Huddle board. SparkPeople is so vast and has so much to offer... it is best to try and get support and find ways to support others by checking out all avenues through the community!! 9252
Take advantage of every aspect of SparkPeople! When I first started, I only worried about tracking my food. Yeah - it helps, but when I started reading articles, blogs, tracking fitness, adding friends, joining SparkTeams, I noticed a big difference! It is not only a tracking system, but an entire support system! 252
