You can use the weight loss contract at any time, but it is especially useful on days when you know that attaching to your weight loss program will be particularly difficult. For example, if you know that an employee brings a birthday cake to the office, you can sign a T.E.A.M promise to enjoy half a serving and reduce calories at lunch. This way, you can have the team assist throughout the day. So far, we have lost about 10 pounds each. My was all lost the first two weeks and then I was lazy counting with calories, but I`m back on it this week so hopefully I`ll show a loss again. Dennis held his end of the bargain with the move, but right now, for the first time, I did a strength routine last night (I feel wonderfully painful today) and others that, just have the dog a few nights a week that I`m home early enough to do it. A weight loss program that works should include: proper diet, exercise, and portion control. This weight loss contract is an agreement between the patient and the doctor to force a long-term goal to achieve a healthy weight. The former Fat Guy Rob also had a long weight loss journey, once with a weight of 475 pounds, but he finished and now entertains a muscular and healthy body. Check out his blog for interesting posts on health, nutrition, recipes, muscle building, and weight loss. It`s a great job to set a realistic goal. As a recovering perfectionist himself, I understand that this can be difficult to do! And I love your contract, and how it`s a team effort for you and Dennis to achieve the same goal. I always respond to challenges with an integrated reward, so that if I ever have to go on a weight loss plan, I will adopt your method.
Splurge`s money would certainly be a strong motivator! I find for myself that so much of my problem is to eat unnecessarily… at this time of year. This year, I`m going to focus on staying focused every time I put something in my mouth. I kept most of the weight I lost when I started WW first, but some of them slipped. I go back to meetings and I lose again. I would like to keep the money I spend each month for myself instead of giving it to the WW. Maybe someday. For months, we talked about an idea we had brewed, an incentive plan to help us lose weight together, which does not include paying someone else for their help. So when we finally got comfortable with so much indignation against ourselves that even fries and cheesecakes couldn`t reassure our food-poor souls, we deposited everything in writing and signed it all.
And can I just say that I`m so proud of myself because I put a weight of 140 pounds? For some reason, I have this idea that 130 is the magic number, even though I haven`t seen it all my adult life, unless I`ve had type 1 diabetes without knowing it and I`ve dropped 50 pounds in three months.
