I was thinking yesterday that it would be nice to have an accountability partner. My son helps me with this a bit, though I feel guilty about that. Even if he is almost 20 years old, he is still my child. I don't want him to feel in any way responsible for my decisions. This blog also holds me accountable. However, another person (or maybe more) would be nice.
I think God has sent me one! I got a sweet email today from a lady at work. I only know her by sight, and I knew her first name but that's about it. She explained that she has been admiring my weight loss, and she needs to lose weight, and she wanted to know how I was doing it. Over the course of several emails, we exchanged numbers and personal email addresses and agreed to be an encouragement to one another and to hold one another accountable.
This was nice, because I doubt that I would have ever reached out to someone like this. I am such a private person. That's why my blog is basically anonymous. I have a really difficult time sharing things with people. I feel that I need to learn how to do that more. In doing so, I would help myself, have more accountability, and perhaps helps others.
