Default Keeping Myself Accountable

Hi everyone! I have been on 3FC for about a month, and have yet to really start my weight loss journey. I am a college student and just finished with my finals, and had the mindset that "I'll start later." I finally plan on officially starting WW and working out tomorrow, but I'm afraid it'll soon fade out, the same way it has all other times I have tried WW. I can't afford to do WW online or attend meetings, so I am just doing it at home. My family is supportive of me, but I have a hard time keeping myself accountable to follow the plan long term. It's frustrating because I really do want to lose weight and get in shape, but I never seem to be able to follow through with it. I need some way to keep myself accountable for making this lifestyle change. Any suggestions?

Find a forum or two which you can post in daily and get to know the other people there.

For me, those threads are the "get out of the..." thread and the Beck forum. I poke my head in lots of other places, but I post on those two every day--and that keeps me accountable and motivated and supported and supportive.

There are age groups (20s, 30s...), there are "method" groups (calorie counters, WW, Ideal Protein...), there are exercise groups, etc.

Find yourself a home or two and once you get connected with the posters there you'll have (and be) a cheering section. I find that incredibly motivating and it has gotten me back on track several times when I might otherwise have given up.

Good luck!
Goal: Back to where I was!
