i have found that if i let a few close friends know that i am working on myself, i am more motivated and positive with the situation and more apt to stay on track. When i didn't tell anyone, and attempted to do it myself, friends didn't know and offering me a large piece of cake or donut was nothing. Now that those close friend know that i'm working on myself, they don't offer me the big piece of cake but offer encouragement instead. Keep those close friends closer during this time.
Friend's support is a great way to lose weight. They are great motivators and positive influences in your journey.

Using the tools that SP has to offer has made me KNOW I will succeed this time. I didn't realize how much I could actually eat when I pay attention to the nutrient labels and document my intake. I would litterly starve myself until I hit my goal. Then I would just go back to eating whatever and then wham, I was right back to where I started plus 10 lbs. I didn't change my lifestyle which would set me up for future failures. I'm eating better now, while loosing weight. USE THEM! 381
