Some people have asked me why on earth I’m publishing my weight and weight loss progress on a public blog and even notifying my friends and family. One word – ACCOUNTABILITY. It helps keep me going when I just want to sit down and eat a big ol’ piece of pie. As embarrassing as it is to have people know my weight, it’s even worse to give up and quit and start packing the weight back on. Keep in mind, I am not losing the weight because of what others think, but I am using the blog as a tool to help me lose the weight.
