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!

Finding a buddy who is going through some of the same struggles you are can be of benefit. If you are having trouble keeping up with exercise, check in with a friend who will help keep you accountable. Or better yet, find someone with whom you can exercise.
If you are having trouble staying within your calories, make a goal with a friend who is exepriencing the same and check in with each other daily. Set a goal of accountability with that friend. You don't want to let them down, and you shouldn't let yourself down. Plan a reward for meeting it
Find a buddy on this site that you have never met before! They won't judge you and maybe you guys will become friends! It will keep you motivated and maybe it can become a competition if you're into that. A person with the same goals as you will help you achieve what you want.306
Find a buddy--I'm lucky to have 2 daughters in Sparkpeople so, even when we can't be together, we challenge each other to do 30 min of cardio or track food. Knowing they are trying to be healthier helps me to work hard!
