Eagle-eyed readers will notice that I haven’t been mentioned my weight on this blog for a while. That’s because things haven’t been going well. But all that is about to change, because I now have a sponsor.
I’ve only ever been to one meeting of Overeaters Anonymous. It was helpful, but of course, going to a meeting during lockdown is impossible as they’re all cancelled. However, it suddenly struck me that I could still ask someone to be my sponsor.
A sponsor is generally someone who has overcome overeating and who you call when you’re tempted to binge. However, in my case, it’s someone who will FaceTime me every morning and watch me do a weigh-in.
I was hoping this daily blog would keep me accountable, but online there’s no one to object if I don’t weigh in each day – whereas with my sponsor, they’ll insist that I do a weigh-in. I really want to stay on track with my weight loss to make the process worth their while. Their time is valuable and they are awesome, so hopefully I’ll soon be slender again!
