When I made the decision to write a blog and share thoughts with the world, I did more than that. I made myself accountable.
By having to answer to you, I also have to answer to myself.
I went shopping today. I’d had a big Slimming-World-friendly cooked breakfast, so I wasn’t hungry – at least I wasn’t when I started walking around. Everywhere I looked, there was temptation: sweet treats, flavoured oils, bacon sandwiches, Christmas hampers.
Two days ago, I would have buckled. I would have bought something, thinking that I could put it aside for Christmas and then it would have been eaten before the day was out.
Today, accountability influenced my decisions. I found some Christmas presents – except the one I was looking for – and I didn’t buy a single food product.
I can proudly say I’m on track for one A, one B and a maximum of 15 – my Slimming World friends will know what that means.
“You’ve conquered your cravings,” I hear you say. No, they are there, but I control them, not the other way round.
Does accountability influence all my 3Ds?
Of course it does and I will expand more on that tomorrow… Doing a daily blog, at least until I reach certain goals, I can’t tell you everything in one go, can I, or I will run out of anything useful to say.
