I not only needed this article, but learned serveral very good points about goal setting. I particularly liked the idea of support buddies. Not everyone that is a SP Buddy on my SP page is actually a support buddy. Perhaps we should have another button on my SP page that reads, "Will be a Goal Support Buddy" or "Goal Support Buddy"....we could help each other with specific goals, etc. Great article, keep them coming. I love the specific helps and suggestions.
He is right about everything and I am living proof that it works. I bought one of those two year calendars in the drugstore. Every Saturday morning I weighed myself. By seeing the pounds come off, it was such a motivator (my only regret is that i did not measure myself with a tape measure before i started losing weight so I can only guess how many inches lost). Also I agree with him about doing one step at at time. I started dieting first to get use to it then I started excercing. And since my whole office was trying to lose weight at the time, that was my buddy system.
