The Importance of Support

Blog Sep 23, 2009

"You don't realize how important Family/Peer support is until you don't have it."

Just a short blurb for today discussing how important a support structure is for your weight loss nutritional goals. Dieting and weight loss is hard enough to do alone but it becomes even more of a difficult task when you don't have somebody supporting or believing in you along the way. It requires a lot of determination and sacrifice to make smart nutritional choices. if you surround yourself with people who share a similar vision and goal as you, it makes the process all the easier.

But just as a good support team can help lift you, a negative team can easily bring you down. If your surrounded with individuals, family members, spouses, etc. that encourage you to stray from your diet, drink alcohol, go out to eat often, and pressure/guilt you into decisions... Your in for a lot of work. That doesn't mean that your dietary goals cannot be accomplished, trust me, they can. All it means is that you have to have crystal clear goals and vision in order to obtain your results. Don't let others stand in your way and stop you from what YOU want. The moment you do your live in world of resentment.
