If you are here from the A to Z Trim Healthy Mama Series, welcome! You can check out the rest of the A-Z THM series by clicking here.
To start out the A to Z challenge, we are of course starting with letter “A”. When I was thinking about what word to focus on for “A,” three things immediately came to mind. Amazon, Aldi and Accountability. So there may be a post later on about THM things to buy from Amazon or Aldi but for today accountability won out.
Trying to start a healthier lifestyle is hard. But it certainly isn’t impossible. With a great support system and some tools to help you keep your focus, you will be on your way to losing weight and kicking your sugar habit. These accountability methods for success on THM will get you interacting with other Trim Healthy moms on social media and help you stay motivated to stick to the plan.

Accountability Methods for Success on THM
Thanks to technology, there are tons of way to make yourself accountable while following the Trim Healthy Mama Plan. If you are just starting out with the plan, be sure to read the THM book. You can also check out how I lost 60 lbs postpartum following THM if you need some motivation to get started.
Finding accountability methods for success on THM that work for you is key to making the plan work. Does one of these ideas make you cringe? Don’t do it! Find one that you are comfortable with and get active into making yourself accountable to gaining a healthier life and body.
Trim Healthy Mama Facebook Groups
The THM Facebook Groups are amazing for so many reasons. They are a wealth of knowledge and typically a big community of supportive THM mamas, THM bloggers and admins/coaches.
You can find accountability for yourself here in a number of ways. Many times people will suggest 7 day or 30 day challenges. Sometimes they are food based or workout based. Maybe a fuel pull 4 day challenge or a 30 day no cheat/off plan challenge. This is a great way to get in with a smaller group of women and stay on track.
In the THM Beginners group, there is an awesome lady that posts every day encouraging more seasoned THMers to post their breakfast, lunch and dinner photos and then explain which fuel the meal is and why. I always think that being the teacher is a great way to learn and to be accountable. So get to teaching! Don’t worry, if you are not sure post anyway and someone will help you out.
If you are looking for other groups, just type THM & then the specialty that you are looking for in the Facebook Search box. For example, THM Drive Thru Sues, THM No Special Ingredients, Working outside the home THM – there is a group for all of these! Plus tons more. Find one that fits you and that you can engage with regularly.
Instagram THM Personal Food Diary
Using Instagram for a food diary is a great way to create accountability for yourself, track your progress and even get meal ideas from other mamas.
I created an Instagram account just for my THM stuff and my food diary. You can check it out by clicking here to get an idea of what I mean by food diary and to get lots of E and S meal ideas plus see what I eat every day.
There are lots of THM food diaries on Insta that you can follow for inspiration.
Food Log For Accountability
If you read my post on weight loss stalls on THM, you know that I recommend a food log if you aren’t losing. It isn’t right for everyone and some people start THM just so they don’t have to track their meals and record calories. So if it isn’t your thing, just keep on keeping on.
But if you enjoy seeing a record of your meals and progress, a food log could help you with accountability. I like to use the My Fitness Pal app to record meals.
Having a Trim Healthy Mama buddy can be a great way to keep yourself on plan. Maybe it is a friend at work, your sister, mom or even a Trim Healthy Husband. The method that you use to keep in touch and the frequency is up to you. Text pictures of your meals, meet up for a THM friendly lunch or call when you are on the verge of going off plan to get some encouragement.
You can even get on one of the THM Facebook pages and ask for a buddy if you don’t know someone personally. I have seen it done plenty of times & you might even help someone else find their buddy too!
I hope these accountability methods for success on THM help you to find a way to stay engaged and encouraged on your journey. Next up in the A to Z Trim Healthy Mama Challenge is letter “B.” And you know what “B” is for? B is for budgeting on Trim Healthy Mama. Don’t believe those rumors that it is too expensive!
