The Buddy System

Saturday, July 10, 2010

Well, my dd and I have come up with a new plan to make us accountable to each other. We are going to take our pics each month and see our progress. This is the first time I have done something like this. I am always horrified by any photo of me, but I am going to have to learn to deal with it. From now on I will post pics of me each month.
This morning my dh took the photos of me. We do have separate computers and operating systems so as soon as he gets the photos to my machine, I will post them on my page (he is going to send them to dd straight from his machine).
I need to get my exercise on track. For now I have a contract working from home, and so I may try to take an hour and go into the free beach in town to swim for 1/2 hour to get in shape. If I start work earlier, and finish later, I should be able to swing it.
I also need to plan menus for the next 2 weeks. Money is tight, so I need to use home-made salad dressings once per day and prepared salad dressings for the other meal.
I also need to start blogging more to keep track of my daily progress.

    I think you will love being able to look back at these pictures in the future and be so proud of your successes. I know that you must be feeling very positive about the changes you are making and committed to your goals. Best wishes to you and your husband. Lets just keep getting healthier and thinner. emoticon

    I'm pleased DH is supportive. And I'm pleased you have a plan. Howecver, your plan is a little vague. You don't "try" to get to the beach; you set a time -- schedule it! -- and you make it a priority. It is SO easy to let attention to yourself slip to the bottom of the list. But if you don't take care of yourself, you can't really take care of anything!
