Finding Fitness Accountability

After loosing 130 pounds, you can imagine that I get many questions from people whom are looking to change their lives and loose weight. That’s great! And I’m flattered that you think enough of me to bother asking for my input. While I can’t hold every single persons hand individually that reaches out to me (I’d like to if I could) – there will always be some questions and topics that just seem to be on repeat.

I’ve heard it again and again from people:

So here’s the deal. When you decide you want change but need that accountability to be successful – always remember you are in control. No one else is responsible for you or your behavior.
