New Commitment

Hi all,

I have used Cronometer in the past unsuccessfully. Not Cronometer’s fault; I wasn’t fully committed. I am committed now.

Now I am trying to decide if I want to go “Gold” or not. For those of you who have gone Gold, tell me why I should if you are happy that you have or why I shouldn’t if you are sorry that you did. :smiley: Is it really worth it? I guess these silly ads might be just enough to put me over the edge. :wink:

I am so done with being overweight. I want to have more energy and feel better, not hurt when I climb the stairs, look better in my clothes, etc, etc. I have already lost 40 lbs but have another 50+ to lose. I’ve been stalled out for about 6 months and need to get recommitted.

I am hoping by joining this community, it will give me a little boost. Thanks for listening. Good luck to y’all

    I too am very serious about losing the weight while also maintaining proper nutrition, only 5 more pounds to go to hit my goal. I love the Gold membership, no ads, importing and sharing recipes with others, nutrition scoring, the fasting timer, ask the oracle (really helps me target foods according to the specific nutrient I should be including). I will be renewing my Gold membership for my maintenance phase to keep the weight off and track my workouts. I definitely think its worth it.

    Coming at it from a purely psychological perspective, investing in a goal financially helps to promote personal engagement and increases the likelihood of following through. "Buy-in," or "skin in the game" really does work. If you're willing to put real money down to change, it is both an indicator that you're serious and that you're likely to hold yourself more accountable knowing money is on the line. Besides investing in a tool like Cronometer Gold, there are also bank accounts you can set up to hold yourself accountable to health goals, so that if you don't hit your targets a certain amount is withdrawn and donated to a charity of your choice. Same principle.

    40 lbs is an exceptional accomplishment, Tina! Well done and keep up the good work. We're cheering you on from the Cronometer office in Revelstoke, BC Canada :)

    If you need any help, don't hesitate to get in touch - we're happy to assist. I find it does help to focus on the quality of life improvements you'll gain - energy, mobility and generally just feeling better vs. the number on the scale.
