Overeating continues to be a problem for me, and after watching Dr. Oz the other day, and watching Biggest Loser, I realized I needed to draw a line in the sand and knuckle down to put a stop to this. So I went on-line and put a contract out on myself (so to speak) using stickk.com. I mentioned stickK in a previous post (click here).
Previously when I set goals on there, I did not commit to any monetary loss, I just did it on my own. I did fine with my other goals, but not with my overeating. So this time I put my money where my mouth is: I will lose $5.00 for each week that I don't make my goal (I set the duration for 4 weeks... which means I could lose up to $20 if I don't mind my Ps and Qs). For any week that I don't meet my goal, StickK will donate my money to the anti-charity I selected (I won't tell you which charity I chose--they have several options). Every week that I keep my goal, I keep the money.
StickK is free of charge to register, and as I mentioned, you don't have to do a contract involving money. You can set any kind of goal that you want when you choose "custom" -- and you can make it for a one time thing or an ongoing thing, plus set how many weeks, or your own deadline. It's fantastic. Here's a link to the website... (stickK) (I learned about stickK.com through Reader's Digest. It's a reputable site.)
I am really hoping the thought of losing money to a charity I dislike will keep me on track.
I've drawn the line in the sand and I'm determined not to cross over!
