Why Are Supporters So Important?
Supporters play a key role in the Diabetic Manual program. Supporters are people that you invite to follow your progress. While it is possible to do this program without any supporters, we strongly recommend that you invite at least two people to support you—and for best results, five or more.
You can invite family or friends to be your supporter by simply using this page to send a message (text or email) explaining what it means to be your supporter. Each person you invite can accept or decline the invitation. So nothing about your program will be sent to them, other than the invitation, unless they agree to become your supporter.
Once someone has agreed to become your supporter (by filling out a form that is attached to the invitation), they will receive a periodic text message or email asking them to click a link to review your progress. Supporters will get to see just enough information to understand what kind of progress you are making on your program. Your supporters will have a chance to leave you messages of encouragement along the way. Also, if you fall off the program, your supporters can encourage you to stick to it to achieve your goals.
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO REACH YOUR GOAL, YOU WILL HAVE SUPPORTERS. The more supporters that you have, the more motivated you will be to make constant progress toward your goals.
