I’ve lost weight before. Why can’t I make it happen now
If I had more time, I’d get to the gym
I’m embarrassed and sad about the number of meals my family eats out every week; we never eat together
My kids are getting older. I worry about their food choices once they leave home
I am tired of being tired every day! But I need that time late at night to unwind; Netflix relaxes me
Vegetables? What vegetables? Just not a big fan. And they’re a pain to clean, cut, etc. not to mention expensive
I feel amazing when I volunteer. But how in the world can I squeeze another thing in; there are not enough hours in the week as it is
I just can’t say no. Everyone knows it, so I get asked to do everything and I just keep piling it on
But I know what to do
Yep, we all do. And it’s so simple! Google diet, exercise, family meals, healthy sleep habits, self care...It's all there, a gazillion hits. And then do what? Start where? And how will I stick with it? It's overwhelming, and furthermore, who's got the time to sort through it all and set up a plan.

I feel weak asking for help
Bah. Take a walk around Michigan State University’s campus; MSU athletes’ shirts read Iron Sharpens Iron. It’s printed on their weight room wall. Ken Mannie, 44-year coaching veteran in his 24th year as Head Strength and Conditioning coach for MSU tweets: “We will not accept you as you are. We prefer to show you what you can be and help you achieve it” and "A Spartan’s Greatest Strength is the Warrior Standing Next to Him (Her)." Coach Mannie's dynasty is built on the premise that we can only reach our greatest potential with the support of others. Put your pride away and do as the MSU athletes do: Accept the help.
How does this relate to me
Studies show having an accountability partner makes a difference. “Despite the challenges, it is possible to increase one’s chances for success to a 95 percent rate. The American Society of Training and Development found that people are 65 percent likely to meet a goal after committing to another person. Their chances of success increase to 95 percent when they build in ongoing meetings with their partners to check in on their progress.” https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/310062
