  • I think this challenge is just what I need.
  • looking forward to a improved me this year!
  • I am trying this new challenge to help myself get back on track.
  • I am trying this new challenge to help myself get back on track.
  • I enjoyed the article -very timely and informative. And I especially appreciate the permission to be kind to myself and not expect perfection. This too often has been my nemesis. If I stumble in my quest I'm in good company - about 100% of humanity.
  • My favorite Zig Ziegler quote "when people tell me motivation never lasts, I tell them bathing doesn't either, that's why I recommend it daily". I need to make this my mantra.
  • Overall, a good article. But I don't believe in rewarding myself for something I should be doing. That's like rewarding myself for cleaning the house or doing the laundry.

    More and more I am embracing the concept of persistence over perfection. This is a kinder and more realistic attitude for me to embrace because I want this behavioral/attitudinal change to effectively carry me through the rest of my life.

    I am just starting out and goal setting was a little overwhelming. There were so many choices. Thanks for a well-written article.
  • Good tips to use.
    I found setting a certain number of pounds to lose per week could discourage me if I didn't reach that goal. So instead I worked on losing 10 lbs ,at a time. Try to lose as soon as possible.
    At first it was within a month. but after the first 100 lbs or so It took a little longer , But because I had the goal of 10 lbs, I was happy with my success.
    Too many people lose hope when weight loss doesn't happen as fast as they expect it .
    It takes longer and more dedication to lose than to gain.
    But it is so worth it to hang in there.

    Thanks for this article! and looking through the comments I saw @WILK_2013 's comment using the star system, I think its an awesome system! I am now motivated and will start my star system as well.
  • Great article! Yesterday I posted my intentions on my blog with specific goals to work on, then this article shows up today! I'm going to post my goals on my calendar where I can see them every day. I like Wilk_2013's idea for gold stars on days I complete the goal.
