Social Support Questionnaire
Social Support is defined as having a network of people that support your endeavors, contribute positively to your decision making processes, and are there for you when you need help.

The following questions are designed to assess you level of social support. Since this variable is a very important determinant of how well you'll do following any nutrition or exercise program, let's figure out, right now, how much social support you've got around you. Once you've completed all the questions, your score will be calculated and we'll discuss it. Be honest. You're doing this exercise to find the areas of your life that might present challenges to your progress. But be careful, once you recognize your challenges it's easy to blame them for your outcomes. Don't do this. You're in control. You have the power to place yourself in the right environment so use it!
