For a while I've been wanting to loose weight. I am happy with who I am and my body shape but I know that my health would improve if I lost my excess body weight. I have found though that it's really easy to hide the fact that I'm wanting to loose weight and not be held accountable for what successes or set backs I'm having if I dont report it to someone. I also find it hard to talk to my family or friends about it without feeling a little self critical when I do have the set backs. It's not that they ever say anything bad about it, we all have them, its just that I feel almost ashamed of them. Plus I dont like feeling like people are there watching what I'm eating which is what I sometimes feel when I know people know I am trying to loose weight.
So that's where this swap comes in. It's going to be set up really easy. Mark down your weight. Try to note the time of day and roughly what you are wearing. After a week take note of your weight. You will have one partner. Send your success (or set back) difference to your partner via a swap bot message (or to their email). Just say something like yay I lost 2 pounds or it was a really tough week I gained 2 pounds.
You can go into more detail and in your one email with information like daily weight changes (but please put a overall success or set back for the week). What things really challenged you this week. What things you feel proud of doing that week. etc. I will set this sign up period to last a little over a week. I will also put a 2 week period on the sending date. You can start marking your weight when you sign up, when I assign partners, or upto a week after I assign partners. Just make sure you allow yourself a week to track your weight change!
If you decide to do more than one swap of this feel free to also include your overall weight change. For example if it was week five it could read : This week I had a tough week and gained 2 pounds. Overall with the swaps I've lost 10 though!
I am going to be setting up several weeks (some in advance so I can't weasel out of it lol) with more to follow. If I don't post up more bug me about it! Get me to do it so you can do them with us!
If you have lost the weight that you're happy with you can also use this as a way to help keep yourself motivated to keep it off :)
