How many of us have tried to lose weight for a big event like a family get together, New Years party, a wedding...? I think we've all been there. What do you think of the idea? Is a good way to jump start healthy eating if it's done with realistic goals?
I've been doing this in a way for the past year in a way. What I've done is say my goal is to lose X amount of weight by X date. On X date I'll have a event to look forward to being smaller. I have a trip this fall that is in the works and I'm trying to tie my WL goal around the same time as the trip. I also have a friend that summers in Seattle. When she gets back in a month from now I want to reach my 1st WL goal, which is what my food tracker says I should reach that WL goal. Enough about me! Let's hear it! Is this a form of positive reinforcement in the weight loss journey?
