Having an authentic support system can make or break your journey and results. I was isolated from my family and my friends for years. I was kept away from them and not allowed to have contact or communication with them. What made a difference for me in losing weight, was trustworthy accountability. I sought it out. It’s still a huge part of my success today.

I’ve also been blessed to see healing in my relationships with my family and old friends who are now a part of my life again! I’ve also had to make the tough choices to let some friendships disappear which were not encouraging. We all have busy lives. Include those who will encourage you in your daily journey. Not those who will tear you down.
