Accountability is something that I hate, but absolutely NEED. It's just how I'm made. I do better when I am talking with others about my goals, my efforts, my plans. Just sharing with someone is more likely to make me reach a goal. Is it right? Don't know, but I know it works for me.
Times when I am not able to be here, seeing what others are doing, and sharing what I am doing, I will drift. Sometimes very off track. Being accountable for me can just be sharing or actually sitting down and partnering up with someone to achieve a mutual goal. Knowing that someone out there is going to ask me later how I am doing in a certain goal shared keeps it more on my mind. I am less inclined to forget or excuse my lack of effort.
I came across this article on how fitbit is now offering community settings in their app to connect people with similar goals.https://diatribe.org/fitbit-diabetes-communit...
I have never used a fitbit (or any of those kinds of devices) but I know many people who have. There is now a diabetic community there, and I was wondering if anyone here has used it. How did it help you reach goals? Was it helpful? Did you even know it was part of their app? I would enjoy hearing your feedback on it.
