Hello, my name is Stephanie. I am a mom to three beautiful and healthy children soon to be ages 4, 7, and 9. I have struggled with weight loss pretty much my whole life. I fight Ankylosing Spondylitis daily.

I read an article that encouraged me to focus on small things (as does SP) so I wanted to aim that way with my healthy goals.

Large goal:
1. Drink the equivalent of 140 ounces of water each day.
Small goal:
1. I will start small with this one and start at achieving 20 ounces consistently then bump it up by 20 ounce intervals until I reach 140.

Large goal:
2. Eat mainly fruits, vegetables, and lean protein.
Small goal:
2. I will start small by adding a fruit or veggie to each meal/snack. Then I will increase to two servings at each meal/snack. Eventually I will eat enough fruits &/or veggies at each meal/snack that I won't need very many carbs. Lean protein is easy for me, we already eat lean chicken, lean ground turkey, tuna, and eggs for our meat options.

Large goal:
3. Exercise 30 minutes every day.
Small goal:
3. I will start small on this goal by committing to at least 15 minutes every day until that is easy. I will then add 5 minute intervals until I get to 30. If/when that gets easy I will keep adding 5 minute intervals for eternity! :D

Large goal:
4. Get 7+ hours of sleep every night.
Small goal:
4. I have set a bedtime for myself of 11pm to start with

As for weight loss goals, I am focusing on 10% intervals. Each time I reach 10%, my next 10% becomes a percentage of my NEW weight. Weight loss goals:
