Spring Focus Group Report-In

June 2, 2010

Well, no one expected it to be all good news, right?

Once again the majority of Spring Focus participants had a really good week. But of course, the devil is in the details, and those who faltered (including myself) didn’t help the group numbers at all.

62% Making some or all of their goals

This week we had the highest number of people not making their goals since we started. Of course with a holiday weekend that’s not a huge surprise.

Progress, Not Perfection

Guess who pushed us into the positive as a group? Those who were being SOMEWHAT successful in their goals. Those who did great were canceled out one to one by those who missed their goals by a wide margin (sorry for that!) and it allowed the room in the middle to be the shining stars!

I’m a big believer in Incremental Improvements in life in general (and weight loss in particular) so this was great to see.

I issue a challenge to all Spring Focus Participants (and everyone else too)

Let’s ALL get at least PARTLY to meeting our goals this week.

  • One meal on plan.
  • One day of exercise.
  • One day with enough water.
  • One day of recording your calories.
  • Whatever YOU make for your behavioral goals, let’s meet at least a part of them.

Most of us will fall short of Perfection, but all of us can make PROGRESS, right?

PROGRESS, not Perfection has been my motto for many, many years – here’s a chance for all of us to put it to the test!

Progress Not Perfection

My hope is that ALL of us can report in for this week either “YES” or “Partly Yes” for meeting our behavioral goals this week!

There are still 5 weeks left in Spring Focus – that’s a good chunk of time to make progress & make sure you’re set up with good habits for a good summer – so join in by commenting here!
