Hi J. You might want to check out the weekly motivation thread. It starts fresh each Monday. People post their goals for the week on Monday, and then report back on their successes and missed goals. People are very supportive there. I find it very helpful to publicly report in about how I'm doing. After not making my exercise goals for the previous two days, last night I got my exercise in between 10 & 11 pm last night because I didn't want to have to post another day missed. You'd think I'd do it for myself, but honestly, I would have let it slide again yesterday if I wasn't reporting in. Also I've gotten a lot of good ideas from other people there. It's interesting seeing how other people set and manage their goals.
