Iíve taken time to reflect on and to set meaningful and realistic goals. It will give me a clear path of where I am and where Iím headed.

I will post my goals on my fridge and on my bathroom mirror where Iíll see them multiple times a day to keep myself focused and motivated.

I have created a supportive environment around me to increase my chances of success by removing most processed foods from my fridge and pantry, by telling my niece, Kara, my plan and setting up workout days with her, and by sharing my plan on my Spark page and blog. I will check in with Spark friends a few times each week to support them, and for their encouragement.

I will evaluate my goals monthly to see if I need to make any changes, and to reward my successes.

Hi Susie...you are doing great!! So proud of you:-) I love the idea of encouraging and holding each other accountable by checking in every other day, I'm just worried about letting you down. I have so much happening with family, work, and health issues, I'm afraid I'll "drop the ball" yet again and not keep up with you....but I need to do something, so I'd like to try (with apologies in advance) if you're willing? I will understand if you'd prefer to do this with someone more reliable, just let me know.
