When I think I wan to change a lot of things I get discouraged. Those are wonderful goals and will need to be handled in bite-sized chunks. As an ex-smoker, I know how hard it is to quit. Your emotions may go crazy for awhile when you do this. But you CAN do it. Hugs!

hi. Just thinking...those are all really BIG goals. My thought would be to establish some short term goals also, attainable at shorter intervals. Help keep you feeling successful and motivated to continue. For instance, cut back to one glad of wine for a month and get a reward, get yourself to walk/run one mile and get a reward. Celebrate 5 pounds at a time!.Start slow so you can keep your enthusiasm going. What do you think, make any sense to you???? Glad you are here. I hope you stay and play (and work too)
Hi I have been off and on Spark for a few years now but this time I am going to take full advantage of all that Spark has to offer and encourage. This time I gave a goal. ..42 lbs by the time I turn 42 in February. Now dropping 42 lbs might be a bit to extreme and would put me back at my college weight when I worked out twice a day 5 days a week. I will settle with going from a heavy size 12 to an easy size 6. There are other goals that I hope to achieve by the magical 42. Quit smoking. Quit drinking the much needed 2 glasses of wine every night after a stressful day at my job with the 2.5hr commute. Learn to run/jog for at least 3....4.....5 plus miles without walking. And the biggest is to reduce the stress in my life with exercise. I plan on blogging and using Spark as my sound board. I look forward to achieving my goals as you all are achieving yours. Peace
