The Fat Lady is Singing!

Did you like that title?  I hope so!  I used it to get you to read this blog post.  And if you are - it worked!  A perfect demonstration of how a good title or great headline can increase your open rate.

But that is not what I wanted to write about today.  Today I really wanted to talk about being fat.

Because I am fat!  In fact, that's how I got into the whole network marketing thing.  Looking for that perfect weight loss product that was going to make me skinny again, but still let me eat whatever I wanted and not work out.  By the way, I'm still looking for that one.  And I'm still fat.  But hopefully not for long.

If you follow me on Facebook, then you recently saw my video and Facebook Live where I publicly announced my goals - yes, including my weight loss goal - for the coming months.  Why would I put myself out there like that?  Won't I be embarrassed if I fail?  Well - yeah.  Probably.  And that's why I did it.  Extra accountability.  Now everyone on Facebook knows my goals.  And if I don't reach them, I'd better have some solid reasons why.  It sure is an extra incentive whenever I want to watch TV instead of write or eat that Brownie. 

It has been scientifically documented that publicly announcing your goals means you are much more likely to achieve them.  And I think this is partly why!

Now of course I can't just embark on a weight loss program.  You know I have to try to help others along the way.  And so I have decided to document my journey.  You can read all about my story here if you like.  I just started that blog.  Two posts so far.  But it's going to be a juicy site!

I'm tired of watching all the hype about products that don't work and diets that fail and meanwhile, we just get fatter and sicker. 

And that's the purpose of my blog post here.  To introduce you to my new weight loss blog.  To encourage you to join me if you have the need.  To watch as I use the blog to promote my weight loss products (you didn't think I was going to skip the business part of that did you?)

I am hell bent on changing some lives this year!  Are you one of them?  Let me know!  Share your goals in the comments.  Remember, publicly sharing means your much more likely to achieve them!
