Staying Accountable

This Sparked Me!

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...."

MORE INFORMATION:
It's better to convince yourslef than someone else. It's better to give YOURSELF the control :)

    You are right. When we ask others to remind us of something, we are shifting responsibility to them. We tell ourselves that if they forget to remind us, it is their fault, not ours. Short of holding a gun to our heads, others can't make us do something. We must be responsible for ourselves.

    What a great suggestion. So simple!

    I agree. I think it is very important to be held accountable for our actions whether it be to someone else or ourselves. Accountability counts!

    So So True!!.
Only we can do it .. we have to be accountable for what we put in our mouth ..
No one is forcing us to eat what we don't want to eat, and if we cheat we are only cheating ourselfs so that is a pointless exercise. I have learned to say No Thank You ..I would rather have something a little lighter if you don't mind..

We need to stand up for ourselves... it is our lives and our choices.

    I've found that telling others of my goal helps me to hold myself accountable to accomplish them.

    Holding myself accountable to my goals of weightloss has made this ride so different. Each day I make sure to earn my 5 points for water and logging on to SP. These streaks keep me going so that I know that I have two goals under my belt.
