Some of us require accountability. Not someone to police us, but instead a person that knows our intent and that will call us out when we are not holding ourselves to the standard of which will take us closer to our goals.
I have a couple of these accountability buddies. They know who they are.
Recently I talked about a goal I had and made the comment to my friend “What if such and such is still there?”. It took her all of 3.2 seconds to send me a response that simply said “Oh, I didn’t realize we were living in the world of “what if.”
I love her for it. It was an eye opener of the underlying lack of belief I still carry in some areas. That just means there is more work to be done on my personal belief system.
I have another accountability buddy that shares daily meal structure along with pictures of her meals. We strive for small balanced meals every 3 hours. I’ve begun to do the same with her. It keeps my meal plans fresh because I know she will call me out for not having a variety of fresh veggies.
I also have hard-core friends that never ever need anyone to hold them accountable, they don’t judge me just as I don’t judge anyone else. It’s not my place. Weight loss and fitness are a process, that process is different for everyone.
I like having someone to lean on from time to time. It makes leaning solely on myself much more doable.
Want to eat cleaner and work harder? Find someone that will call you out, even if it stings a little. You’ll be better for it!
