Accountability Partner

Sunday, August 18, 2019

Does anyone else have one?
I have had the same one for two years but recently she decided to change her directive.. she quit. I can tell you that I felt totally dumped.. I am worried about her but what about me. Its like loosing your best friend.. I was devastated. I know I must keep going and I will but it just was such a shock. Its so much better with an accountability partner. I love the spark people Facebook group but somethings you just don't want to share with a ton of people. I didn't think it would be possible to find another one to quickly because you have to just click right away and that's not always easy to do long distance and via text message lol. but I did. I got so lucky. Her accountability partner and mine sounded so much a like it was earie. So I now have a new one and I am excited because I feel like we are truly both on the same page and going in the same direction. I feel like we can learn so much from each other but its still like starting over and retelling all the bad things all over again. It is a little scary. POINT BEING starting over in any area of your life might be scary but it can be a positive!

    Learned something new! Had no idea there was a FB group for sparkers!. I've been on SP long enough to lose several of these types of relationships. They are so key and central and yet POOF gone in an instant as people some times shift from one priority to another. I clicked through to your blog post today because it showed up on the DONE girl blog list. There are several people in the team who are truly dedicated and following through. Bet you can make a connection there. Likewise, I found the people who are following similar dietary goals to my own are helpful (for example, if someone is doing low carb and another sparker is doing low fat--that's not likely as supportive as it could otherwise be) or similar health goals (finding a team with common exercise goals such as walking or strength training, etc) Best wishes in finding your best new accountability group.
