Chapter 27 - building the friendship

Saturday, December 13, 2014

In your notebook, list 2 or 3 things that you learned from this chapter.

Spangle explains the Dot Calendar.
Green sticker - weight loss day (solid day on your program)
Yellow sticker - maintainence day (caution - your day could have gone better)
Red sticker - gain day (poor day on your program)

Put up a calendar where you will see it everyday. Each day put a sticker on the day associated with what happened. This allows you to see what you are doing over time. I really like this idea and think it will jolt me back into doing better on my progarm. I am going to try it. Now to find round colored stickers!!!! lol

What are some ways you can relate to the clients or examples in this chapter?
N/A

What will you do differently as a result of reading this chapter?

To remember the scale is only a reflection of what you are generally doing on your plan (except when there are plateau's). It is NOT a reflection of you! Don't blame the scale for 'wrong' readings. Adjust your plan accordingly.

cheers,
barbara

    I'm not sure I like the sticker idea but it's a visual and would work for some.

    emoticon I tried the dot calendar for a time. The round colored stickers were hard to find, even in large chain craft stores (maybe a teacher's store or website might have them). I used star stickers instead of dots. My big mistake was not posting the calendar where I could easily remember to place the dots and I would forget to use it.
