In brief: Power in numbers
Support systems are comprised of that: support.
When you are trying to lose weight being around others with the same goals is empowering and motivating and can make you more accountable. You may find activites such as exercise easier with a support system and find replacements for food. Weight loss support groups are successful because of education, motivation, accountability and action.
