Session 9

Session 9 Session 9 is all about support. An individual’s social support network includes her friends, family, and peers, and is critical to her well-being, her confidence, and her ability to improve her health. However, it is not uncommon to feel as though individuals in this inner circle are not supportive of your decisions, particularly when you are making lifestyle changes. Because this lack of support can derail a participant’s ability to meet her fitness goals, this session provides an overview of some ways a lack of support may become apparent, and potential coping strategies in such instances. Allow participants to freely ask questions about this or previous sessions during the group discussion.
