Looking for a fellow user to hold each other accountable (or group)

I learned about the keto diet over a year ago. I have gone on and off of it since, experiencing success and setbacks. In my head I know what I have to do and I know I have to stick to it for it to work but for whatever reason, I get caught up in going out to dinner with friends, having wine, summer bbq's and my focus goes out the window. I have to lose about 25 pounds and running the NYC marathon this year (woman in my 40s). If there is anyone out there that is interested in joining forces and holding each other accountable, I would be down for that. I have friends that are supportive but I just can't seem to pull it together. Thoughts? Thanks for reading.

  • I can be an accountability partner, although I do live in the west so time difference.  I also need someone to help hold me to the fire so to speak.

  • Trina - Hey girl. I'm in if you'll have me and a Yankee fan (lol). How do I go about joining your group?  I started my Keto journey just yesterday and plan on hitting it steady for the next 60 days (minimum).

  • Mommalj6 - Let's do it. Maybe we can both join Trina's facebook group and see who else is out there with the same issues. If not, then we can do this together.

  • Mommalj6 - what are you trying to accomplish? I need to lose 30 pounds preferably by November 3rd but I am realistic...I am also set up for 60 days of no drinking to boost the weight loss. Now I know 30 pounds is aggressive so I would be happy with 20.

  • mcgjoce19912 I need to lose 50, time frame doesn't really matter as I can lose inches fast with workouts.  I just need to get my weight down.  I'm a nurse and it's hard to maneuver sometimes with all this weight

  • Mommalj6  - ok, so how should we figure this out? I am running the NYC marathon for the Brain Aneurysm foundation and I am finding it difficult to run with the added weight; that's why I have a bit of a timeline. I am 4 days into Keto and feeling pretty good. We should take our communication off this site and onto a different platform where it might be easier to communication.  Thoughts?
