Hello and welcome to the team, you can do it just remember to take it one day at a time and you will do great.

*** Sharleen *** Motivational captain 30 something challenge

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Welcome, Angie- my name is Angi
It sounds like you are looking at this exactly the right way. I get frustrated looking at the end goal too.
Congratulations on making healthier choices already. I know you can do this!!

Think I am there. Always been a little slow at things and afraid of my own shadow sometimes.

Sounds like you are ready to make big progress in short time!

Hi, my name is Angie... this is my first "teampage post" so I hope i am doing it correctly. I have about 110 lbs to lose to get to my goal weight. Weight is important and important goal, but my plan is to focus on the journey as much as possible rather than the end goal. If I get too focused only on my end goal weight, I think the little setbacks along the route will be harder to push through than if I focus on the little accomplishments I've made. For example, I realized just tonight that I've been eating much healthier already, in two weeks (I officially started eating healthy on 12 August) than I have in a very long time. More fruits and veggies today, for example, than in the entire first two weeks of August. And it's not because I'm in the "dieting" mindset, but because I'm in the eat-foods-that-are-healthy-AND-that-I-like-mindset. So... here's to focusing on the small steps. (and to hoping I posted this correctly!!).
