Resolutions that Work

THE CHALLENGE:  Goals must be realistic and achievable. Research shows that unrealistic goals can undermine the behavior changes needed for lasting weight loss.

THE SOLUTION: With the New Year looming, it's especially important to steer away from unrealistic goals and design powerful goals -- both long- and short-term -- that will yield results in 2010.
 



Just in time to start the New Year on track, the 3 Month Journal has been updated with new tips and recipes. Spiral-bound and a convenient size, take it with you so you can track anytime. Only $6!

Celebrate Every Success

THE CHALLENGE: Weight loss, as you know, does not proceed like clockwork. Even the most enthusiastic person occasionally loses their motivation, hits plateaus, and gains a few pounds. These events can cause some to become so frustrated and discouraged that they stop working toward their goals.

THE SOLUTION: The meeting is an excellent opportunity to help you understand that noting successes and rewarding it can create a boost in motivation and confidence to continue. It's incredibly important to help you see success beyond the numbers at the scale. Recognizing and celebrating little bravos -- choosing only one cookie from the plate of cookies, tracking every bite for a whole day, or realizing a watchband feels looser -- can keep you inspired, on the right track, and feeling great.

Putting the "P" in Perseverance

THE CHALLENGE:  The holiday season's tempting treats and party foods can lead you to overeat, causing a lapse. You may get lax with your exercise efforts because of your busy schedules. Lapses are normal, but after experiencing one, you may revert to your old eating and activity habits, or relapse. If you relapse repeatedly, you will feel like you'll never get back on track and may quit -- a total collapse.

THE SOLUTION:  It's vital that you persevere and not give up. To do so, it's important that you figure out how to prevent lapses or recover from them. The holidays offer an opportunity for you to learn from your lapses and build even stronger weight-loss skills.

"There's no such thing as failure, only feedback."

When time is an issue, consider using a POINTS Clicker. It can be a major time-saver and make tracking a realistic goal. It is only $5 and a perfect stocking stuffer!
