The Buddy System

Hey Weight Loss Wednesday gang.

Hope your week went well in the eating and exercising areas. Please leave a comment today letting us know how you are doing and what we can pray for.

I myself have had a great two weeks and let me tell you why.

Accountability.

While I love our little cyber group, for me it also takes someone with whom I can go one-on-one. When I originally lost 100 pounds, it was the gal behind the Weight Watchers counter. Then for a while it was my Weigh and Pray group at church where I had to weigh-in in front of someone .

Since our group at church stops for the summer, I was left with no one to weigh in with.

Then, two weeks ago, my dear friend Mary and I came up with an idea. It might seem strange, but it is working for us.

Each week we take a picture with our cell phones of our scales while we are standing on them. Then we send the picture to each other.

Now, this was a bit scary for me. I don’t like ANYONE knowing what I weigh. Why, I even ask the doctor to look away when I weigh in at his office! So you must find a tight-lipped, trusting and non-judgmental friend, who will both encourage and inspire you.

It really works.

Seriously!

I’ve lost 8.8 pounds in two weeks!

Grab a friend and try it!

Now, check in here and let us know how you are doing. Do you do anything beyond our cyber group for accountability? If so, what?

And don’t forget to hop back over tomorrow for our big summertime give-away!! It is a basket-in-a-box of summertime treats!

Blessings,

  • Hey there! I’m soo late in posting….The last few weeks have been busy. My husband is my accountability partner and I have a great coach with the program I’m doing….We did a happy dance this last week as I am under 200lbs for the 1st time in almost 4 yrs! I’ve lost 32lbs total…last week I barely squeaked out a lb. I blew it one day when I caved to some brownies. lol If I’m being honest I will admit how much I miss my old carby friends! Praying for us all that we will make healthy decisions for our bodies and rely on God’s strength in resisting temptations. Hope you all have a great week!

  • Hi all! I just wanted to hop on quick and say how proud I am of those of you who are hanging in there and commenting each week. I am praying for you. You can do it! Have a wonderful weekend :-)

  • Yesterday, I forgave those I resented for not meeting my own expectations of them. Thanking my Heavenly Father for His grace in Jesus’s name. That same day I asked a friend if she would keep me accountable. She said yes!!!!! :D

  • Prayed for all of us.
    We got back from visiting our dads. And everything went downhill because I didn’t go grocery shopping and we came back to a full schedule of activities.
    My Father knows how many times I’ve asked ladies to keep me accountable. Even my own family doesn’t mention when they notice I’ve lost or added weight. Except for my teen son. Yes,I am so thankful for him! Aside from him I haven’t found one who isn’t too busy for me or cares to tell me the truth in love even if it hurts me.
    This is why I keep a checklist to keep myself accountable.
    I’ll stop complaining and will try again.
