I would love to review the Beck steps as a group. I don't have any teaching background so I wouldn't consider leading. Anyone interested?

My Key Lime ,
Hi, I am also looking for an accountability partner. I do ok during the week, but struggle to stay consistent on weekends, holidays, etc. I'm considering joining Weight Watchers just for the extra accountability of getting weighed every week, but I would prefer to spend the 40$/month elsewhere. Plus, it's a pain getting to the meetings. I've read most of Beck before, but now I'm getting more serious about it. I'm on day 6.

I have a somewhat similar background. I am 42 and the mother of a 6-year old girl. I have lost weight in the past, but I have regained due to emotional eating. I am at 185ish right now and would love to get between 140-150.

I can post every day or two. Let me know if you are interested.

Hello! I know you said you were looking for only 1 or 2 people, but I am looking for the same thing - so I thought I would post here in case someone else is also looking for a diet coach / buddy.

A little background - I'm 38, married, mother of three boys - 11 and 9yo twins. I work out of the home 4 days a week.

I'm 5'7" and currently 190 -- my goal is 145. I lost weight back in '05 by going to LAWL,but my center closed and I began emotionally eating and slowly gained it all back. Right now I'm just on Day 3 of the Beck book and really want to connect with someone else in a similar situation that would like to work through the book together - checking in daily or at least every couple of days. Thanks!

You are so on the same page as me. I do text and I love email. Check it all the time. I will sparkpeople you the info. Yes we need to know what we want for ourselves and how to hold each other accountable.

Thanks for being bold and asking for this.

Thank you, Faith & Glenna. It helps a LOT that you guys have the same experiences that I have.

A couple questions. 1, would you be willing to swap email addresses? 2. do you text and would be willing to share numbers?

Also, let's start brainstorming on ways to hold each other accountable. Maybe share what our goals are so that we can be specific when checking in and coaching each other?

Hi, Faith here. I could have written your post myself. I dissappear very easily. I was actually in a group once that was a 12 step and I had to call my "sponsor" every morning. That worked very well for me.

So I would be willing to do that also. I need that kind of help also. Let me know if that would work out. I know I haven't been part of this team long and am still trying to get to Day 1 but I will commit to that and to what you are looking for.

More hugs,
Faith

Hi! I'm Glenna from WV. I'd love to give this a try. My story sounds exactly like yours. I think I'll rely on Spark for support, then kinda just fade away. And I cannot get to meetings anymore. I figure we can give it a go. If it works great! If not, at least we tried!! lol I should be able to commit to everyday. Unless our electricity goes. We live in a rural area. Just remember if it does, I'll be checking on you first thing when I get back online!! Let me know if you're interested!
Hugs,
Glenna

I finished reading day 6 and last time I had a good support system I was in a Biggest Loser group. It was online but we posted several times a day and had challenges and had to leave the team if we didn't weigh in and fill in our points and such. It was a GREAT accountablility system. That's how I lost 30 lbs.

So I was tempted to breeze over day 6 with the thought that, "Sparkpeople will be my support group" but that hasn't worked over the last couple years. It's too easy for me to just disappear when I feel like a failure and then just give up all together. KWIM?

So I was thinking I need:

1. 1 or 2 people max. Anymore than that and it will be hard for me to keep up.
2. Someone to report my daily food to. Either report via my blog or have them check my Nutrition Tracker.
3. Someone to check in with me DAILY, see how I'm doing, ask if I've stuck to my plan, etc.
4. Someone to ask me what the heck is going on if I'm not posting my food

and I will do the same for you. If you don't think you'll be able to comit to doing this daily, or you think you might forget, it won't work, and that's ok. I'd rather have no one respond than people agree and not remember to follow through.

BUT... I sure hope someone wants to work with me! LOL! I'm a ver friendly person and I check in several times a day and I like to be silly so I won't be boring. I promise ;)
