Secrets of Success

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.

More Information:

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.

  • This is similar to how I turn "negatives" (i.e., how others tell me how I derail myself) into positives: if someone points out that I eat too much junk, I find ways to substitute and/or add more healthy snacks and be creative in what meals and snacks incorporate them throughout the day(s). I thank them, and work on creating my meal plans as soon as possible so I can stay focused. Thank you for posting this secret! emoticon - by JANEXA
