Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

Weight Loss Support is invaluable in weight loss, and a great support team can be the difference between long term success and failure. Support needs are different for each one of you. Some of you like people to notice your weight loss, and like to talk about it, but some of you are private and feel threatened when people notice you.

Weight Loss Support is invaluable in weight loss and a great support team can be the difference between long term success and failure.

Part of your success story, will be to determine what you need, and gather a few support people that can help you on your journey. You must learn to verbalize to others what is helpful to you. This can be difficult, and may mean you will need to develop some new friends.
