An accountability partner can help you reach your wellness goals.
If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you’ll know that getting rid of offending food items from your home is one of the first steps.
I, for one, know that if it’s in the house, I will eat it. I don’t have the self-control to stay away from that ice cream buried deep in the freezer, or that semisweet baking chocolate that tastes kind of old but I’ll eat anyway.
So, if your partner or spouse (or even housemate) is not on board with your health kick, it can be super hard to stay on the wagon.
What you really need is someone in the house who is committed to supporting you, and who you can turn to in weak moments.
An accountability partner is an ally on your journey to getting healthy. They are with you no matter what, and always act in your best interest.
Not in the interest of the craving-riddled you who wants to eat their weight in pretzels, or even drunk you who needs to order takeout pizza at 4am.
But the best interest of your best self. The you who wants to overcome bad habits and addictive foodstuffs to find health and contentment. The you who aims at a healthy relationship with food, so that one day your eating choices will not rule your life.
That self needs back up.
