No, I do not. 

And, having someone online would do me no good. Right now, even having someone in person would do me no good. I have three children, and absolutely no babysitter. There is no time to exercise by walking, nonetheless it's winter here, lol

No I don't to answer both questions. A partner can be there to support you but to hold you accountable the only one that really can is one's own self.

I don't have an accountability partner. I've tried to get some friends to do it with me, and push me. They always bail on me so I've given up on trying to find one. I know it'd help in the long run, but I'm over the disappointment.

I'd say my accountability partner would be my little girl. She's my motivation.  Her getting made fun of in school because of my weight issue is what pushed me to go ahead and start this weightloss journey. I owe it to her, and myself of course, to try my best..

My DH is my accountability partner.


I try harder when I know I have to do it for some one else instead of myself. I hate myself to much to try and impress myself, so instead I try and impress others. Sad really.

I don't have one, but in the past it has always helped me when I had someone doing it with me.
