Weight Watchers offers a weight loss readiness assessment that asks you a simple question: "are you ready to commit to losing weight?" This has proven to be a very popular tool. Not sure how new this is, but the new Weight Watchers Momentum program does have a much greater focus on the mental aspect of weight loss.
As part of their overall tool set to get you ready to lose weight, they also offer a BMI calculator and a health assessment. The idea is that by highlighting the health risk to one's weight, that can help give you the motivation to sustain long term weight loss.
What is interesting is that the mental aspect of weight loss can be helped along by changes in your diet. It is a chicken and egg sort of situation, but when you "scratch the CD
" of your patterns, it becomes easier to make any change you want.
In essence you need to manufacture your readiness. Which in turn will provide fuel for motivation. It is simple physics if you think about it. Objects are hard to get in motion, but once they are, they are easy to keep in motion.
The key is that you need a good jumpstart to get the object in motion. PEERtrainer has put together three tools that could help you get "in motion" as part of a free weight loss program
. You don't need to do all three. Just take a look at the three options, see which one is a fit for you, and give it a try.
The key to readiness is to create it yourself!!!
This is a great weight lose assessment.
This is perfect for my program.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful stuff!

I think that simple question: "are you ready to commit to losing weight?" would make some people pause momentarily.
Especially if they had previously failed in their first few attempts.
Having the motivation to stay the course is the key to weight lost.
