I love sharing a goal with a friend so we can give each other a boost on tough days. I'm currently training for a half marathon with a good friend and we text each other about it all the time. It's awesome motivation!

Solicit Positive Intervention; Explain Goals, Ask for Support
Purpose is to share goals with people in your inner-circle & solicit written feedback from people who care about you. Primarily from family members & long-time friends, people who would be directly affected by my current or possible future health concerns due to weight would participate.
Hearing your children, siblings, & lifelong friends telling your their observations on how you derail your life is powerful. Focus on the positive life you'd miss without health & what others miss without you. NO abandonment -- only support & accountability. Ask for support & take responsibility.
