Item Details

Learn the secret to making changes that stick. Every so often people get inspired (again!) to lose weight, get organized, start saving, or stop worrying--but a few months later they give up, frustrated. It doesn't have to be that way. Author Ryan offers wisdom and coaching to help readers make this time the time that change becomes permanent. People think there is one way to lose weight, and another way to stay on top of their e-mail. Rather than one-system-fits-all, each person has their own formula for making changes that stick--but most people don't know what theirs is. This book helps you lock on to your unique formula for planning, implementing, and seeing a life change through, so you can use it again and again to tackle anything else you'd like to do.--From publisher description.

Its going to feel awkward at first

Remember what will truly make you happy
Don't let them bring you down
Use your ABCDEs on those nasty voices in your head
The imperfect is our paradise
You can't change what you've done, only what you're going to do

Have a little fun with it, will you?
Ask for help from invisible hands
You don't have to scarf down the whole box just because you ate one cookie

Once you create the new habit, it's yours for life
The old pathway's still there too, beware of stressors
When blown off course, apply the four As
Twelve tips for keeping your promise to yourself
Conscious self creation
Want more support?

This is a solid read and bound to be helpful if you suffer minor issues, dismissive of the gym, too much chocolate cake and the authors challenge, too many Cokes. The chapters are short, generally 3 pages and if I were to "nit", there are too many concepts. My reasoning for the 4 stars however, is the book didn't motivate me to action, which could easily be my issue, so Ms. Ryan and I will split the difference, ergo 4 stars, not 5 !!
