The Fourth Personality Types Losing Weight — The Supporter

posted by sbrown

We’ve met the leader, the sparkler and the analyst.  Have you recognized yourself yet?  If not, today must be your day.

The fourth personality type is the supporter, or server.  These baby-steppers are usually people-pleasers. They honestly care about others, but being appreciated is important, too.  You won’t see them taking the lead, but they will be good followers.  Leaders love them.

They are patient, good listeners, and will persevere when others fall by the wayside.  Supporters don’t like change.  Even if they don’t like the way things are going — changing directions is scary.  If they do make a change, they don’t want anything big or risky.

So how do supporters do on the low glycemic/step plan?  Great — once they get started.  It’s deciding to take the plunge that will hold supporters back. The step plan is perfect for supporters, because it doesn’t involve expense or large chunks of time.  The meal plan involves eating real food, not crazy, strange stuff or prepackaged food that is expensive.  Nothing is intimidating and everything is doable, which makes it tailer-made for the supporter.

How does a supporter get moving on a healthy living plan? Often supporters will jump onboard to help someone they care about.

“I’ll do it to help you, if you will go on the plan,” they might tell a husband or daughter.  And, the sacrifices are not too difficult, if they are made for someone the supporter loves.

So — if you are a supporter, find someone to support!  I’m positive you have a friend or family member who needs a healthier lifestyle.  Call them up and ask  if they will be an accountability partner for you.  Working together you can help each other to success.

If you do a Couch to 5K program, you will be more likely to succeed if you are training  for a run with a cause.  Planning to run on a team for the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure, or for some other cause close to your heart will keep you motivated and moving.

You have lots of strengths.  Don’t be afraid to use them!

Eating to live and living for Christ,
Susan Jordan Brown

Recipe Day -- Good-For-You Chocolate Cake
I looked at the recipe in disbelief.  NINE eggs? Surely that was a misprint.  Only 3/4 cup flour in a cake?  Not likely.  As I studied about coconut flour, though, I saw that, yes, it does take that many eggs to make a successful cake with this healthy type of flour, and it takes a much smaller
