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.

Perhaps one of the most uncomfortable parts of my journey was going public, but sharing my journey with others has been a linchpin in my success. Sharing ups and downs with Spark friends and family has been important for keeping me on track and motivated to succeed.
I've been here a year, and fallen off the wagon each time. When I fall, I slip big....and go back almost to where I started. This time is different!! My husband is committed to eating healthy and exercising each day for at least 10 minutes. It is such a joy to be able to encourage someone and have someone keep me accountable. Find a buddy for yourself to share the journey!
I have shared my journey & my daily progress with all my facebook friends & family. While I am doing this for myself, I know that if I slip up or try to give up there will be an awesome support system to pick me back up & kick my behind into gear!
