GoalPatrol's recommendation First to recommend Product Description Goal Patrol® is a 24/7 motivator, reminder, and tracker for all those "hard-to-reach" goals! This fun product breaks down your goal into five simple steps. Each bracelet provided represents one step towards your goal. Change your bracelet after each step you complete, and before you know it, you'll conquer your goal! The product can be used universally, for all ages (we recommend 7 & up) and all types of goals! The Goal Patrol Kits come with five bracelets, a convenient non-woven pouch, and instructions. The kits are available in three sizes (small, medium, and large) and four colors (black, white, blue, and magenta). They are simple, practical, effective, and very affordable (MSRP $9.99!). My Story Goal Patrol was inspired by my personal attempt to lose weight. I've always been someone who is active and health-conscious. But, approximately 1.5 years ago, I had a lot of things going on in my life, I lost track of my daily diet/exercise routine, and started to put on weight. After gaining over fifteen pounds, I was determined to get myself back on track and lose this unwanted weight. A close friend of mine became my personal "goal patrol" and harassed me daily about my weight until my weight started dropping and I was able to return to my normal size. In addition, each time I lost three pounds, I'd celebrate by treating myself to something I really enjoyed - anywhere from a massage to my favorite lite ice cream. I found my friend's constant reminders and my mini celebrations extremely beneficial, so I thought implementing both concepts to a wrist bracelet (a highly visible location) would be ideal! I put the two concepts together and developed Goal Patrol. With Goal Patrol, each bracelet replacement is a mini celebration in and of itself. The bracelets are not only for weight loss, but can assist in achieving most goals-bench pressing, marathon training, breaking bad habits or addictions (such as smoking), sales, fundraising, parenting goals (such as motivating children to earn better grades and/or to behave), educational aspirations, career planning, time management, and so on ... the list is endless!
