Be Prepared To Start Slowly

Aim For Small, Quick Wins As You Get Started

Sometimes Just Signing Up And Logging Once Is A Motivating First Step

For some reason many diet and weight loss programs require you to jump right in. Many have difficult "Phase 1's" and elaborate point systems to master. The problem in doing this is that losing weight is really hard. It makes more sense to start slow and work from there. PEERtrainer was built with this in mind, with an easy to use format, that allows you to start slow and rack up some quick, small wins. Walk before you run seems totally logical, but often in the diet world this is not the case. How often could you not stick with a diet? This is a rhetorical question of course!

Lifestyle Change Happens Over Time, PEERtrainer Helps You See The Progress

Maybe you can take some time to prepare yourself. Visit the community every now and then and see what people are working on. Definitely read some of the success stories and see if there are any people that you can personally identify with. You might even be able to be in a group with them (and this is a free site). Visit the spotlight and see what the group interaction is like on PEERtrainer.

Daily Logging Is Often Time Consuming, PEERtrainer Makes It As Easy As Possible

Some people are not comfortable jumping right into a group situation. If you think you are going to be one of those people, start a private group first. If you want to jump right into active groups and teams you can. The important part is that this is all at your own pace. At PEERtrainer, we celebrate the smallest of wins, because they are so important and a much more realistic, incremental approach.

Be Open To A New Way Of Thinking and Living

Deciding to commit to losing weight, getting more fit, quitting smoking, reducing your blood pressure-- all these things require a lot of work. It is not just deciding to have more willpower. In very practical terms, it takes thinking on a very pragmatic level to rearrange things. You will develop new shopping habits, new ways of socializing, new strategies for eating out, think differently about your relationships with your friends and family, and you may even have to rearrange your house!

Do You Want To Be Forced To Deal With Things You Probably Do Not Want To Deal With?

You may have to think about some of your emotions and learn a lot about nutrition. You might have to develop a very critical mindset that is able to take vast amounts of conflicting information and decide how it applies to you. The mindset about how we approach dieting or lifestyle change often needs some tweaking. We are told that a diet or a product is the way to do, and that it is easy. Marketing works by telling us something is easy when the reality is that it is quite hard. So bookmark this page and read some of the links. PEERtrainer will be most helpful to you when you have the motivation, desire and goal all lined up and ready to go.
