I've learned to count on only myself when it comes to staying accountable. I used to tell my friends/family "whatever happens, don't let me eat this or that!" and it never works. It works best if I tell myself.. "no matter what happens, don't eat...."
It's better to convince yourslef than someone else. It's better to give YOURSELF the control :)

Sharing your journey with others, helping them while you help yourself, will aide you to stay on track. Have an accountability partner. Motivate someone who is having a hard time. Help someone who's just starting the trip to healthy living. It all helps to keep me on track.
By knowing I'm leading others by my example, I have to stay accountable to myself, and to them.
