You’ve made it this far. Now it’s time to go public with your resolution.
The simple act of telling others about your resolution will hold you more accountable to stick to it. Believe me your friends and family won’t sit by passively if you start slipping up when they know what your goals are.
If you have a Facebook page or Twitter account, consider posting your resolution on your profile along with daily or weekly updates on your progress. It’s a great way to get positive feedback in the form of comments and “likes.” That’s one of the reasons we’ve asked our challenge team to post about their experience on our blog. Change requires support and there really is strength in numbers.
Feel free to post your resolution and updates on the Laura’s Facebook page, too. We’re definitely here to provide encouragement.
Allow for occasional setbacks. There are bumps in every journey. If you give in to a temptation, don’t abandon your efforts. Accept your mistake, learn from it and move on.
Ask for help. Seek professional guidance and support from a personal trainer, a registered dietitian, your physician or a psychologist. Follow our challenge team on their journey. Even if you aren’t an official team member, you can still count on me and the Laura’s Lean Beef community for support, great recipes, feedback and ideas to keep you on track.
Our team’s journey officially begins on Monday. I hope you’ll join us.
