  • This article hit dead on for me about being uncomfortable with change. I do need to be open and stop judging and becoming defeated. I think I will try this journal. Can't hurt. - 8/8/2014 10:15:20 PM
  • This is a great article that really got me thinking. I have lost 40 pounds, but keeping it off and continuing my healthy lifestyle journey has been a real struggle. I think this may be the impetus I need to start journaling. - 11/16/2013 8:43:19 AM
    Thank you, Dean Anderson, for this wonderful infomation---- Many can benefit from all this advice-- and I am truly appreciative! - 2/13/2013 1:10:09 PM
  • Great I am going to do this.Even when I was in school writing things down helped me do better. My motivation can always use a boost. - 10/3/2012 8:42:20 AM
  • I had previously read your article on " 4 Steps to Lasting Behavioral Change" and it lead me to this article. Both are excellent...I didn't know how to say it, but I needed that "internal" self awareness and self monitoring you describe. Starting a journal today to do just that! Thanks a million!!!!! - 6/13/2012 10:51:37 AM
  • So weird that I found this on the motivation page today because I started a journal this morning. I felt that I needed to write how I was feeling about my plateau and the stress I'm feeling from other things, and how they were compounding. This is a great suggestion, I'll incorporate it in! - 5/24/2012 12:33:02 PM

    Just what I needed. Well written. - 1/16/2012 11:50:39 AM
  • Been procrastinating getting my journal. NOT ANY MORE! Going out today to get a new small moleskin book with graphic pages and elastic closure band. Perfect for purse. I know this will work. - 12/11/2011 11:10:26 AM
  • This article is what I need right now. I am struggling with depression so cataloging what I feel about my own motivations will help me in the long run, I hope. - 5/10/2011 10:17:15 AM
  • I'm so "on this page" today! Thanks for your practical comments & for pointing in a useful direction to apply & make POSITIVE changes! - 11/15/2010 3:18:39 PM
  • Excellent article. I believe the mind is very powerful. If you continually say that you will NEVER lose the weight, I believe that you will not. Also his statement "find what works best for you" is great. - 11/2/2010 11:46:37 AM
  • Coach Dean, what did you do, crawl inside my ear and have a look inside my brain when I was napping?! How do you DO that??? Reckon I'll have to give this a try to shut the Dragon Lady up for good... :) - 5/12/2010 5:54:52 PM
  • This is an awesome article.....have kept journals however not been journalling lately....this has morivated me to re-start again so that I can be aware when the negative creeps in and do something about it so that it doesn't get a hold and pull me backwards..... - 5/11/2010 5:49:08 AM
  • Coach, this is perfect! I have the extrinsic because I need to keep my job, but intrinsic is my struggle. I am going to grab this and start tonight! - 3/6/2010 7:34:54 PM
