As a part of the “baby steps,” I’m seeking accountability and encouragement through a Bible study group at church. We’ll be doing a First Place Bible study. As a part of this, I’ll be held accountable for what I eat and how much I exercise. We even will do a weekly weigh-in.
I’d love to think that I don’t need this, but that’d just be out of the pride of my heart. I do need accountability. Right now, I’m loving going to the pool almost everyday, but in a week or two the honeymoon period will be over and I know I’ll want to slip back into old, lazy habits.
Eating is even worse: I have long since made food an idol.
So, yes, I most definitely can’t go this road alone. I’m thankful for good friends who allow me to talk about these things and will ask me about my progress, but I also need the structure of weekly meetings. I’m excited to get started and take yet again, another baby step!
