Weight Watchers Accountabuddies
So, the holidays are approaching, and I’ve entered into this phase of weight maintenance where I get to the end of my tracking week and just fizzle out with accountability and just eat whatever. Doesn’t happen every weekend and hasn’t resulted in much of a weight change, but it makes a gal nervous, so I’m starting a new project with a friend.
We each have a 3-month Weight Watchers tracker that can be swapped without warning any time we see each other (making sure we always stay up to date and are accountable to our partner). We can demand screenshot’s of our partner’s tracker for any day, demand photos of food, and when we swap we can write anywhere on each of the trackers (encouragement, tips, notes on past weeks, etc.), and our significant others are encouraged to tattle on us if we’re seen taking bites of food that don’t appear to be going in the tracker.
Several nice things about this: it’s new and shiny so I enjoy doing it, I know that someone else will see everything that I put in my mouth (positive peer pressure), I have a 24/7 cheerleader so I’m not alone, and this will run through the holidays (at a minimum) so I’ll be accountable during one of the toughest times of the year for food consumption. Really looking forward to the new motivation from my accountabuddy! Feel free to take the idea and run with it if you have a friend willing to take your ass to task for slacking. :)
