Accountability by Blog

Oh, WOW! If you need to find some way to hold yourself accountable, trying blogging. I have reaped so many benefits since I started blogging last month.

WEIGHT LOSS!
I've lost six pounds since September 19th! I'm going to honor my weight loss by buying a five-pound bag of flour for every five pounds (uh, duh). I've already set up a basket in my closet to hold my bags of flour. Notice, I said "bags". I plan to get more than one or two.

I have not been dieting, nor exercising. The key to my beginning weight loss is definitely being accountable to myself - and to whoever reads my blog.

How long can I go on with this? Is it going to be like all the other weight loss techniques I've tried that work for a bit before I give up on them?

I don't know. But, I do know that all I can do is put one foot in front of the other every day on my quest to lose weight. And, to do that, I have to be cognizant and make discerning choices countless times per day. And, NOBODY CAN DO THAT FOR ME BUT ME.


BATHTUB FEAR CONQUERED!
While blogging about all the embarrassing reasons that I want to lose weight, I realized that, since breaking my arm last Halloween, I've been very protective of my body.

I've felt old and breakable. Yuck.

In a previous blog, I said that I had been unable to take a bath since breaking my arm because I couldn't get out of the bathtub.

Well, last night, I thought "SCREW THAT"!

I decided to take a bath even though I was the only one home.
I decided to take a bath even though I left my cell phone downstairs.
It crossed the elderly lady part of my brain (really, a very teeny weeny part) that I wasn't making safe decisions. What if I did get stuck?

But, again, I thought "OH, GIVE ME A BREAK! I SAID 'SCREW THAT'"!

(Freudian slip.)

And I took a bath. Like a normal person. Yay, me!


Love,
Jenn
