Good idea of keeping oneself accountable when losing weight
I am your classic yo yo dieter. However, there is always that point of weakness that pushes me over the edge and causes me to ruin my weightloss.
So, I started my weightloss again last Friday and I knew there were two things I need to do differently to be successful.
1. Keep scales out of my home
2. Come up with a good motivator
My scales are at a friends house. I keep this away from me because 90% of the time in which I gave up is because I would weigh myself and notice a stall. So now, I weigh myself once every 2 weeks.
A good motivator of "I want to be healthy" should be good enough. But let's face it....we all know weightloss will lead to healthier lives but we continue to eat. Because that double cheeseburger and fries tastes a lot better than being thin...because you can taste that cheeseburger right now...it's tangible.
So, to keep me accountable, I have started a pledge a thon in my community. People pledge a certain amount of money per pound lost and all proceeds will go to children who struggle with hunger in Lancaster City.
Not only will I feel better looking thinner, but I will feel good in knowing my weightloss helped feed children. Its a lot harder to look at a piece of cake and eat it knowing your weightloss will help children.
My pledge is from April 15, 2012 thru December 31, 2012.
