Public Celebration vs Humiliation
Thursday, May 09, 2013
Some people thrive on what has been dubbed the "public humiliation diet".. Posting their weight and feeling agast that other people know it motivates them to keep going.
That doesn't work for me.
The more negative I am, the fewer things I accomplish (case in point - 2013 until now).
But I'm thinking of starting a trend at work for public celebration.
I want to either post a little note at my desk for either (or both) my 1% plan, or the miles I walk/run, in a chart like the one my friend made for her school-aged son.
My 1% plan:
Lose 1% of body weight, and maintain it for 1 week, before doing the next.
(At my highest this month that would be 2.63 pounds).
I don't know how well that would work, but I'm trying it. It's not the 5 pound jump from last month that is getting me - it's the 5% body fat that makes me not fit into my clothes, makes it harder to breathe, and makes me look different.
I'll post pictures when I have some. :)
