Kent, posts are a little hit and miss. It does take some dedicated time to work on a huge aspiration like weight loss. I think the book club is set up so that people can join when they want and work at their own pace. Seeing other posts to say oh, that is how they did something and adding your own posts for others to learn from. A few people are joining right about now (when you are), so hopefully there will be some discussion as they progress.

I found this book club after it was over....and at that time was way toooo busy to try to follow along by myself...

Jump forward a couple months and I am now ready to dive into the book and exercises. I will be working through the book by myself using this group as it seems possible with very few if any people here anymore..

FYI - there are resources - printouts of the important diagrams, flow charts, etc. that come with the audiofile. So if audio works for you, you are not missing anything by not having the book.

Cyndi,
Yes, in later chapters he talks about all sorts of things like:
If it feels hard to do - it is hard to do (e.g. the actual task is 1 minute and easy to do BUT it feels hard to fit it into your day or you have other things that pull you in other directions, etc.).
He talks about wanting to do something and not wanting to do something (different forces - e.g. eat chocolate and stay on my food plan).
And wanting to do two things and you can only do one (e.g. 10 min of Exercise or put away the laundry).
And has some great techniques of how to work with it.
emoticon He give us great techniques to make it easier.

Jane, I used this Maui habit this morning when I got up (modified to "Today will be a great day" as I can remember that rather than his version of "it will be a great day today" and in my mind it puts me more in control than "it" will.

I have been thinking on 3 habits I want to change most of the day and have come up with the 3 (at least for today). However, I think I will just read the book through first and then go back and try to accomplish the exercises. I *know* what I want to add, but looking at the things I want to change that are holding me back is somewhat more difficult.

Thank you for leading this team and recommending the book.

Cyndi, BJ proposes strongly using the Maui habit (feet hit floor first thing in the morning and say "It will be a great day" adding in "...somehow" if you are feeling the day will be tough) - tweak the words for yourself if needed. Practice it (rehearse it 10 times) to help you remember. Then practice finding what words work best for you, how to help yourself remember it (you may need several rehearsal sessions), but he advocates (explained later) linking the habit to the anchor of putting your feet on the floor first thing in the day (not having a reminder note or alarm).

It is a good one to practice with - the goal to open up a possibility that the day will be good (e.g. if you start out feeling it could be a good day it starts you out more positive then going this day will be horrible when you wake up. When you start more positive it will help handle any hiccup happens during the day).

I would not worry about the rest of the exercises until we start the book club - doing them as we do those chapters as a group. We will focus on doing the actual real life work to determine the best habits for you to do (behavior swarming and focus mapping) and then setting up tiny habits for them.

I started reading last night and a little this morning. On chapter 2 (I think) right now. I'm stuck on finding the 3 bad habits I want to use for the exercise. LOL!

emoticon Note, this book is full of information and to understand the entire idea you have to read the whole book. So If you have time, I suggest doing a quick read/listen just to pick up the general ideas (without worrying about fully understanding everything) before the book club starts. That will give you a general framework for the entire process before you actually sit down and start doing exercises.

If you don't have time, don't worry. Those of us that had time will be able to help bring future material in to help us all do the exercises.

There is a handful (or more) of people interested in doing a bookclub starting 4/1.
This is being done by some people in the Biggest Loser Challenge sparkteam www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/
groups_ind
ividual.asp?gid=68423

BLC is a 12 week challenge run by sparkpeople members. There is a break between challenges and this will be done during that break (5 weeks starting 4/1/20).

We may do some skype sessions to support each other in the tasks below - this is still to be determined.

Week 1: Introduction and Chapter 1:
Goals: Understand why a tiny behavior is important (what puts things above the action line of the MAP). Learn the basics of what creates behavior - B=MAP.

Week 2: Chapter 2 & 3:
Goals: Determine your aspiration (crispify it) for "losing weight". Do your Behavior swarm for your aspiration. If some behavior is really an aspiration, crispify that and do a second (or third if needed) behavior swarm for that aspiration also.
Do focus mapping for each of your aspirations and techniques to analyze difficult habit and design golden habits to choose the ones you will do.

Week 3: Chapter 4 & 5:
Goals: Creating strong prompts. Design your celebrations. Create your recipes for your new tiny habits.

Week 4: Chapter 6 & 7:
Grow habits into lifestyles. Work to undo bad habits.

Not covered: Chapter 8 - expand ideas into groups (family, work teams, etc.) and conclusion (a story).
