I think having some kind of support on your weight loss journey is vital! Whether that support comes from a best friend or spouse taking the journey with you or finding a group of people to work with. I run a support group meeting at the clinic that I attend in Andover, Ks as well as one for the teachers of the Wichita School District. I feel this forum and my facebook is a form of support too! I get support from the staff at the clinic during my visits and my co-workers, friends, and workout buddies were all there for me! Other places you can find support would be TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), and Low Carb Friends website. There is actually a Medi-Weightloss Clinics thread going that you can talk to other Medi patients around the country. Medi-Weightloss Clinics also has a facebook page! I hope this helps! Have a great week everyone! BTW, I got in a spin class, 30 minutes elliptical, and weight training yesterday. Running a mile today!
