Hi guys; I wanted to share an idea with all of you, whether or not you've been following my progress in my blog. I set a new challenge for myself which has been working amazingly well, and I think it's something that a lot of you could probably adapt and use for your own purposes.

I've always struggled with temptations - avoiding all my favorite sweets; saying no when treats are shoved in my face - and for a long time now I've been trying to find different "tricks" to help with that problem.A couple of weeks ago, after having been sick and out of the gym for a while, I set a mini-goal for myself: to lose both weight and body fat by the following week's session with my trainer. I made sure to stick to my nutrition and exercise goals, and I started tallying the days in my log. Every day in my notes I'd label it Day 1, Day 2, etc.

As the numbers started to grow, I got more and more motivated to keep counting them up. After 7 days, I decided to keep going. I chose 21 days as my extended goal, because of all the research done that says it takes 21 days to form a new habit. I told myself that if I "slip up," I would have to start over at Day 1. It's astonishing the way just that one little daily number has helped me to say no over and over again, and to make good choices day in and day out.

I have my own personal daily goals, which I outlined in my blog if you're interested, but I think everyone here could set your own daily goals and just stick to them one day at a time, whether they're exercise goals, calorie goals, Points goals, or something else. Just start counting up the days. If you try it and it works for you, let me know. Or even if it doesn't. I'll be interested to hear.

To the last poster

I think that your comment was very rude. Maybe Kate isn't someone who is inspirational to you, but there are others who find her inspirational!

Thank you!

I have hit a plateau in my weight loss. I am fine with the exercise... and with the calorie counting... but have huge back slides when I let myself go for a day or two. I am going to set my goal of 21 days to see if I can stick to my calorie goal and workouts. What a wonerful suggestion - thank you.

Also, I find your experience to be very insprational and helpful. Thank you so much!

10 = 1

It is said it takes ten positives to outweigh a negative, be it restaurant reviews, movie critiques, customer complaints or just plain rude remarks. So hear is my positive-thank you Kate for passing along a great hint, I have already put it into action. Peertrainer is all about sharing and supporting so that we can all be successful in our goals. I hope others will also continue to share experiences that have helped them be successful and not be dissuaded by the occasional negative comments.

This is interesting to read, that it takes 10 positives to outweigh a negative. Sometimes I think people type things without realizing there is someone on the other end recieving it!

Great idea Kate!

I have been doing that for the past few weeks and by doing so lost 9 pounds so far. I think people need to be honest with themselves. Alot do not log down everything they eat. No one here is going to judge you. We are all in this together to help and encourage each other. Wtg. Kate on your great weight lost keep up the good work girl. I'm behind you 110%.
