Wellness Tuesday: The Power of Accountability

One important factor to weight loss is the power of accountability.  For years, I struggled to lose weight but had no accountability partner.  Mama and I tried to hold one another accountable, but quickly discovered that as I’ve previously written about; we enabled one another more than we held one another accountable.

A friend and I decided to hold one another accountable to exercise and eat healthy. accountability

A few of the benefits of an accountability partner I discovered, are:

  1. We encourage one another when we struggle
  2. I didn’t want to tell my accountability partner I’d not exercised
  3. A safe place {or person} to share
  4. Someone with the same struggles and/or goals
  5. A person to exercise with {if you live close to one another—unfortunately my accountability partner is across the country}
  6. Someone to pray for you
  7. Someone to challenge you

I have to admit that in the last few months, we have gotten off tracks.  I have reminded myself the reason for an accountability partner and that it is time to get back on track.

How has an accountability partner benefited you?
