    Came across this article
    http://lifehacker.com/software/motiv...ret-281626.php

    I basically just make a big red X on a calender for everyday that I follow my diet, after a few days I will have a chain going. The thing that makes it fun/easier is to make sure you don't break the chain! Keep the chain going!

    It puts a huge emphasis on each day. Just 1 day could break the chain. I use this website as the calender

    http://www.smarterfitter.com/chain

    This could also be used for any goal you might have.

    It helps me stick to my diet a lot!

    I just created this one for my 2 Stone in 2 Months Challenge that you can see in the challenges section: jumanji's 2 Stone (28 lbs) in 2 Months Weight Loss Challenge // August 1st 2009 - October 1st 2009 // Diet Adherence Chain | smarterfitter.com

    Have fun :)

    I'm sure you didn't :) I saw that in lifehacker too and posted it in the Cambridge Diet section :D It's good isn't it.

    I could move your post, but this is a good place for it anyway :)

    Such a good idea. I might do a big red X for the days I follow my diet and then little green ones for the days that I exercise. Ooo can't wait to get home and attack the calendar.

    What a great idea! I've bookmarked that page just now, but might actually pick up a wall calender today, so I can see it in the flesh, so to speak!

    I never thought of doing this but it's an excellent idea. Thank you so much for mentioning it. I'm off to borrow some of my wee girl's felt tips and decorate my wall calander! :)
