You are absolutely correct to view your weight loss one pound at a time. Short term goals will get you where you want to go.

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Hello, I'm new to SparkPeople. I am a 40-something female, married 12 yrs to my high school sweetheart of 26yrs. We don't have any kids except Nannette, my 2yr old mixed terrier.
I am looking forward to being healthy & happy with myself again. I have too "many serious illnesses for someone my age" according to my doctor's, so I finally decided to get my rear in gear & lose some weight.
I have to lose at least 150 lbs. I know that's a lot of weight but I'm looking at it as 1 lb at-a-time. My short-term goal is to lose 20-30 lbs by December 31, 2012. I've already lost 8lbs since I've changed my diet 1 mth ago! WooHoo!!!
Thanks in advance for all the encouragement...I really need it. Looking forward to meeting my goals & hope to make some friends along the way with all of you.
Good luck, & God bless us all on our weight loss journey!!!
