I know someone here who is doing the ketogenic diet. My good friend, 4ROSEMARY, is. She's not on here so much, because she found that a lot of people were arguing in the ketogenic team she was on. And they were criticizing her choices, which made her very uncomfortable. But maybe you two will hit it off. She's really very nice!

Another way you can get support or answers is go to one of the team leaders. If they do not answer you, it should be reported as that is the reason for them being leaders. They either know the answer or can help you find it.

Friends are indeed valuable also, some of them have been on here for years.

Hugs, Eve

Sorry that I am a little late in coming to this, but the topic is still near the top of the page. You know, so I saw it. And I really want to add something helpful to you or to anyone else with this problem.

You really don't need to tell a person that isn't on the internet! Maybe the challenge says to do that, but you can modify it, so that it's more possible for you. You can go to the SparkPeople message boards, and post about your need for support in the Diet and Nutrition forum. There you'll find people who will understand you and be willing to support you. Another acceptable modification to the challenge would be to contact one of your SparkFriends, and talk with them about the challenge, either in SparkMail or on their page or in goodies. Or if you don't have any SparkFriends, you need to make at least one! This is what I do about this part of the challenge. I've tried to do the challenge before. It's really essential for me to be able to just say, "No, I can't do that, but I can do something else, and that will have to do." Blog about your experiences in the challenge for even more support. Last time I did the challenge, I ran up against a person who acted devoted to sugar and was freaking out. So I just ended up quitting, because she really pushed my buttons. But I am going to try again.

I hear you. Sometimes there are people who are not that comfortable sharing all those intimate triggers. It's the desire to think or portray to others than we are perfect. We are afraid to disclose what a wretched person we maybe. Or is it the roles we end up playing? So do we need to step back one more step and define what kind of support person are we desiring? Is it one we really want to tell us we screwed up or one that nods and agrees with whatever to make us feel good. Some support people can say the truth and move the excuses but then we in turn get mad at them. Again....what kind of support person are you seeking?

So, I like the new format of the challenge with the daily goals. I'm doing okay with the journaling and am seeing insight that I already suspected, i.e. work is the challenge. What I don't have is someone to support me. Seriously. Last time I did this, I used my Mom, but she won't support, she'll submarine. Even then, I'm not home a lot (she's in a another state) and a lot of my regression has to do with stress caused by her health issues over the past year. So, not a good option.

I have "work" buddies but no one that I see on a daily basis that I feel comfortable sharing this with because I'm pretty sure they don't have a problem, so no support. And, I've not lived here long, so my support structure is limited. So, I'm on my own for now and I'm okay with that. However, I won't be able to check off that item for Day 2 and I'm a little bummed about that.

So, SP, I know you think that it's important to have a buddy, but sometimes finding a "buddy" really is more of a hinderance to the process than a help.
