Publicly Accountable Weight Loss Plan.


I have been trying to lose a few Kilos over the last 12 months or so and have lost 3kgs but would like to lose another 5. Tried a few different things but I simply love chocolate too much. The smooth silky taste of Cadbury Chocolate is just too much to resist. Anyway, thought I would use the power of Social Media to make myself publicly accountable for my weight loss goals as an extra incentive to reach my goal. So here is the plan:

Objective: – Lose 5 Kilos in 6 Weeks

Target:- 83 Kilos so obviously currently 88. (its been 25 years since I was 83 kilos so this is not an easy target).

Strategy: Make myself accountable to my Facebook friends – with the idea that this will inspire me for the next 6 weeks. Publicly commit to a goal – makes the goal easier to achieve.

Start: Today – 7th April 2013.

Finish – 6 Weeks – 19th May 2013

Incentive: If I don’t reach my goal weight – I will release a video of me acting out the entire Gangnam Style Video Clip and additionally will sing a solo of any Taylor Swift song.

  1. Go Pete, its impressive that you’ll do it publicly, however I am in two minds about this, Id really like to see you achieve your weight loss goals but on the other hand I would really like to see you act out Gangnman Style dancing and sing Taylor Swift! Ill be watching you closely on this and I may even have to send you chocolate in the mail! 🙂

  2. Not too sure about this Peter. If you go on a diet to lose 5kg in 6 weeks and you are successful, what then? The inference is – I go back to what I was doing before because I have reached my objective. You don’t need to go on a diet, you need to change your lifestyle. When you achieve the latter you will sustain the weight loss. In my view, improving your lifestyle should be the objective, and losing weigh will then become just one of the outcomes. So my advice is not to set short term goals with penalties if you don’t meet them, but to set long term goals with near term milestones to monitor progress.
