NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/14/13 -- Over the past few years, people have increasingly turned to the Internet to access information and support from others who are active on the World Wide Web. Many websites have been created that provide individuals with the motivation they need to stick to their weight loss programs. But, according to FOX News, a Bountiful, Utah resident is taking his use of the Internet during his weight loss journey one step further. The makers of Hydroxycut, a leading weight loss supplement, applaud his efforts to both hold himself accountable for his progress and motivate others to do the same.

According to the previously cited article, this individual is using his blog and additional social networks to make his weight loss journey a public event. He is planning to track his efforts online and, since announcing his intentions and creating a hashtag, he has inspired approximately 100 other people to join him.

The article cites the person as stating: "I think for me, having people knowing what I'm working on and ask me about it, helps me to think about achieving it more often. I don't want to let these people down and it also helps if you help someone else."

The makers of Hydroxycut believe that this public approach, though not for everyone, is certainly a wonderful way for individuals who are comfortable sharing their progress online to stay focused on their goals and work together to achieve them.

"The Internet is truly a remarkable tool," comment the makers of Hydroxycut in a recent press statement. "We have seen the World Wide Web as a means of communication, as a stockpile of information, and, now, as a primary source of motivation. People are turning to the Internet because they can access a network of support that is made up of others who share a common goal. The individual cited in the above article sees his public performance, as it were, as a motivator that keeps him inspired to succeed. The participation of an individual within a group, and the inspiration that comes from seeing other members of the group succeed, are wonderful motivators that can ultimately help people stick to their New Year resolutions."

The makers of Hydroxycut wish everyone the best of luck in achieving the goals they have set for themselves this year.
