If your goals are realistic, chances are they will be hard....but that just makes the rewards all the more sweet. God Bless, Vic.

It took me a year to do pull ups, very realistic considering I never did them before.. Alot of other people are less realistic, I knew how hard it would be..

Some of my short term goals may be easy, but they are the stepping stones to my longer term goal which is to run a 1/2 marathon this fall. Overall I think my goals are realistic and i believe I can achieve my long term goal.

Very realistic but they will take hard work

"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothy�4:7-8)

"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).

That's a good point to keep in mind.

If I lose 2-4 lbs a month, I'll be fine with it; and my ultimate goal is my healthy weight range - not a specific number.

My goals are more along the lines of changing my lifestyle to eat appropriate amounts of healthy foods and strengthen my body with moderate exercise, and by so doing, I WILL reap the benefits of losing weight and becoming healthier. I'll never be done with this goal, but on the other hand, each time I make good choices for my body I will have met the goal.

Essentially, if I treat my body with care and respect out of gratitude for the gift the Lord has given me, the rest will fall into place.

"If you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. If you look at God, you'll be at rest." � Corrie Ten Boom

Remember there is a difference between "EASY" and "REALISTIC". God Bless Everyone, Vic.
