First we will podcast our weekly Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy radio show in its entirety then we’ll release just the guest interviews throughout the week. So please click POD to listen to this recent interview from the Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy Radio Show. Or now you can subscribe to just the interviews from our radio show on iTunes by clicking this link.
We learn how all about a website that will help you stick to your commitments. Jordan Goldberg who is with the website www.stickk.com told us all about how a bunch of Yale students and professors devised this simple but effective way to keep someone compliant to their weight loss program, their exercise plan or even their attempt to stop smoking.
stickK promotes healthier and happier living by helping people achieve their personal goals through the signing of Commitment Contracts. Happier people = happier world!
On stickK, you draw up an official commitment contract that binds you to achieving a personal goal, be it big or small. By agreeing to this contract, you publicly state your goal and commit to achieving it. Or, if grand public pronouncements aren’t your style, you can tell only people you select. Either way, you’ve committed to a goal and people know about it - so now it’s your reputation at stake!
To make you accountable as you work toward your goal, you file weekly reports on your success. (And don’t even think about lying — because you appoint someone you know as a “referee? to verify the accuracy of your reporting!) You also enlist as many Supporters as you’d like to encourage you, via the website, every step of the way. If being part of a group gives you momentum, you can join a community of people on the site who are working toward the same goal as you (this feature will be ready in February). To keep yourself focused throughout your adventure, you record your progress – daily — in a personal journal.
Want to up the ante? Gamble more than your reputation. Place a financial wager on yourself.For more Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy check out our new Wellness Minutes blog where we give you in depth information on health, fitness and weight loss topics in 3 minutes or less every single day.
