This is WHY we joined TOPS!

From Denise Austin:

I know it's tough to revamp your eating habits, start an exercise plan, and improve your overall lifestyle! These are big changes we're talking about, and you could probably use more support and encouragement. You know I'm always here for you — but the more support you can get, the better!
Research has shown that people who have support are the most successful at diet and exercise programs. Plus, when you make a commitment to improve your lifestyle along with someone else — a close friend, your significant other, a child — you're more likely to stick with it. It's not just about you anymore — someone else is counting on you! So ask your neighbor to commit to walking together for 30 minutes three times a week, or plan to cook healthy meals each weekend with your spouse or kids. Sign up for a sports team or a dance troupe — you'll have to come to practice and put your best foot forward because the whole team is counting on you!

Look online for support as well. If you have a close friend whose schedule is not similar to yours (so you can never chat by phone), e-mail him or her for support and encouragement. There are great motivational Web sites where people who have been successful at losing weight and improving their lifestyles share their inspiring stories. Members can even sign on and visit the Message Boards to chat with other members and find weight-loss buddies who are facing similar challenges.

How you go about finding that extra support doesn't matter — as long as you do it. C'mon, start building that support group today. There's no time to waste!

Live, Love, Laugh!
