Accountability here it is. I eluded to my new accountability plan in my last post. I have stayed away longer than usual because I was mentally preparing myself for this post...

I have decided to take a break from working out with a trainer. While my work pays for a nice chunk of it (I am so blessed) they don't pay for all of it. Chad and I have some very specific financial goals for the next year - and this just doesn't fit into those goals. Secondly, as summer approaches, and the weather gets nicer, I have realized that I don't want to have to go to the gym at a certain time. If it's sunny and my kids want to go to the park - I don't want to have to say "sorry, mommy has to go to training." Finally, Chad is trying to work out more, and I want to be supportive of that. He has supported me for almost 2 years and he deserves the same in return. If he wants to go work out - then I should be able to be flexible enough to fit that in.

What it really comes down to for me is: If I haven't learned enough to lose the last 25 pounds - then I have wasted my time and money.

So, I am going to finish on my own. But not really on my own - I have so much support. I have created, with this blog a support system, and even if you don't comment, I know you are reading. The accountability this blog gives me is a gigantic reason why I will succeed! Here's my plan:

On Mondays - I will weigh in and I will post my weight so you can see my progress. AHHHH!!! I think it's good though. It's a big motivation on the weekend to know that I have to post on Mondays. You can hold me to it. If you don't see my post on Monday - comment on that please. This will happen every Monday until I have lost the last 25 pounds.

I will update my blog to have a ticker of some sort but for now:

Weight on Monday May 3rd: 186.8

Weight on Monday May 10th: 185.4

Loss of 1.4 pounds.

By the way... isn't that saying on the photo perfect??
