Okay, so this post has nothing to do with writing. It all has to do with accountability.

I am reading this fascinating book by Gretchen Rubin called “The Four Tendencies.” In this book I have discovered that I am an OBLIGER. What this means is I am excellent at meeting other peoples expectation, but pretty much fail at meeting my expectations of myself.

To overcome this, I need accountability. If other people have expectations of me, I have a better chance of succeeding.

For years, I have been trying to lose weight on my own. I don’t have the money to pay for a diet plan, so I want to use this platform as a place for my accountability.

I am turning 50 at the end of the month, and frankly, I have gotten to the point where not only do I not like the way I look, but even more importantly, I do not like the way I feel.

I want to feel better. I want to be healthier. I want to lose weight.

Thank you for being my accountability partners.

  1. That’s great Raelyn. I do my exercising at home as well. If you lift weights my advice is make sure they’re the right ones for you. So many push themselves using weights that are too heavy or they aren’t ready to use yet. Working out doesn’t always have to be super difficult and instead more relaxed and fun 🙂
