One of the hardest things about weight loss is being accountable for your actions. This month, we are asking you to share your journey with the world and to be accountable to the group. We’ve been working for 10 months this year and now it’s time for you to show your work.
Our October Challenge has 2 parts.
- DietBet Contest – Accountability Group
- Photo Accountability on Social Media – Instagram, Facebook and Twitter
Join our October DietBet – Starts Oct 6th

PHOTO Accountability Challenge – #BWLWOCT
When you sign up for this challenge you are agreeing to post a photo related to your weight loss journey at least 3 times a week. Feel free to post everyday if you like. My personal goal (this is Ajima) is to post photos of what I’ve eaten everyday and recipes I’m trying out. I will post weekly roundups of your great photos on our blog and re-post some of your photos on our social media profiles to motivate the group (linking back to YOU).
Are you In? Ready to join us? Sign up for the challenge by leaving a comment below. Let us know where you will be posting your photos. Give us your username for Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram. Post the link for your blog. Post the link to your Facebook page. We want to follow you! If you’re not posting publicly, let us know how you plan to be accountable on your journey in October.

Don’t want to show your photos to the world? That’s fine. You can still join this challenge by doing the work of recording your journey in photos in October for your own benefit. You will also have a record of your process that you can be proud of. You may consider posting photos to your private Facebook page, Instagram or Twitter feed to encourage your friends and family. You could also do this challenge with a friend and trade photos back and forth.
This challenge is all about Accountability! You will be showing the proof of your journey through photos and being accountable to the group. Your photos will show the actions you are taking to get to where you want to be. You might want to share your ups and downs. You may be sharing a major victory or lesson you’ve learned. You may just be posting a photo of your breakfast or the read out of calories burned on your favorite elliptical machine. Just like we tell children who are doing their math problems to “Show your work.” we will be showing ours to the world.
If you participate in this challenge, I promise you that it will be motivating. You will truly be challenged to see what you’re actually doing in terms of eating, exercising and how you feel when you see those photos staring back at you. Also, taking photos is a great way to document your progress and victories, so that if you feel discouraged in the future you can reflect on those photos for encouragement.
What kinds of photos should you post? It’s up to you. Ideas:
- Photos of what you’re eating – meals and snacks
- Photos of you working out (at home, in the gym, etc)
- Photos of the read out screen on exercise equipment showing your calories burned, time, heart rate, etc
- Progress Photos
- Before and After Photos
- Gym Selfies
- Photos of recipes you’re making
- Photos of recipes you want to try
- Photos of your meal prep routine
- Photos from the grocery store
- Photos from when you are eating out with friends
- Smoothie Photos
- Photos of the clothing you can now wear since you’ve lost pounds.
- Photos of your dream outfit
- Quotes and Inspirational images you find online that inspire you and speak to your journey
Don’t forget to tag your posts with #BWLWOCT so that we can find them and check out your photos all month. I look forward to seeing all of your photos!!! – Ebony Ajima
