Like others before me, I've come to the point where I know I need to do more to lose weight. We all get caught up in the hard reality of sitting too much for work, spending time on our kids and our jobs and not ourselves. It's reality.
I decided that it's time to make a change but there's another reality to this situation. Doing it alone and not being held accountable by anyone but yourself makes it impossible.
In reading Facebook posts, I realized that I'm not the only person in this position. From other working moms to other workaholic friends who haven't paused to take the time to take care of themselves, we've all talked about our struggles and trials to lose weight and keep it off.
I had the idea last week to create a private group on Facebook where we could ask each other questions, give each other support, and talk through stressful situations. Ultimately, a forum of support, kindness, and above all, encouragement.
Are you looking to support friends in various journeys of your life? I can't recommend doing this enough! In one week, I'm down 3 pounds and I owe a lot of it to the motivational ladies in my life and this group!
