I am most unhappy when I go shopping for new summer shorts or a bathing suit so that I'll feel comfortable helping my son learn to swim. I'm unhappy shopping my own closet for something to wear to work. I'm unhappy when I'm smacked in the face with the reality that I've gained and maintained a nasty 10-15 unnecessary pounds since having my son. Mind you that was almost 18 months ago.
I, like many women, am incredibly unhappy with how my body looks. I've made excuse after excuse after excuse why I'm carrying around extra weight and why it's too hard to lose. I have more jiggle than ever before and I've become completely complacent with my workouts and diet.
When I look in the mirror I have an inner-dialogue about my unhappiness. I've told my husband I'm unhappy. I've told my mom and my sister. Now I'm telling you. The world now knows I'm disappointed in how I look. But I'm finally sick of being unhappy. I need to make a change I need to do it now.
I know that there's no magic pill. There's no secret wrap. There's only one way to shed the 10 to 15 pounds that I despise: diet and exercise. But I also know myself and I know that I will not stick to a diet or continue to exercise without some sort of accountability. That's where I'm hoping you can help.
I'm looking for a few good women. Women who might have some of the same insecurities. Women who know there aren't shortcuts and still want to make an effort to change. Women who want to be healthier. Women who just need that little bit of encouragement to keep them on the right track.
I'm looking for an accountability partner. I'm looking for a work out pen pal, someone that will email me and keep me on track with my diet and exercise. Who can provide an encouraging word and also a stern talking to when I get off the track. And my promise to you: I'll help you along in your weight-loss journey. I'll send you emails and texts of encouraging words. I'll look for exercises that will diversify your workouts and I'll also be on the lookout for great healthy recipes that would fit into your lifestyle and new diet.
Two women are stronger than one. We can build a community of encouragement. If you're interested, simply comment below with your name and email and I'll create Accountability Pairs. Since this is a timely matter matches will be made as they stream in. This is open to all women, not just bloggers. There's no button to add to your blog or follow-up post required. You just need to be motivated and able to encourage others.Be Blessed,
