    Team Leader- Just Looking To Fit In
    3006 days ago
    Welcome, welcome, to a program that can change your life if you allow it to. You're young, and pretty, and smart, and I know you'll do well here.

    Most of us find that making small changes we can live with add up over time. I don't think you failed; you just learned what doesn't work for you. Now you have a better shot at finding what does work. After all, Edison tested thousands of materials before he found a light-bulb filament that would light up the world. And you, sweet girl, will light up the world as well. I can feel it.

    I know you're here to lose weight, but losing weight is not always under our control (think water-weight gain, ugh!) , while consistency is. I'd like to suggest that instead of tying your reward system to weight lost, you tie it to consistency in eating better and exercising. There's no reason why you can't celebrate major milestones with a special reward, but little rewards along the way help keep the big goal reachable. Most of my rewards come from the dollar store or the local thrift store, so they're not budget-busters, but a new pair of earrings or a brightly colored blouse are real motivators for me. So is giving away clothes that no longer fit, since I tend to keep clothes long after the point when I am sick of them.

    As you go along, you'll find out what works best for you, when you need to be gentle with yourself and when you need a motivating kick in the seat of the problem. I'll be looking forward to your progress reports.
