I finished my water fight. I can now drink 8 glasses of water a day - 4 days in a row so far. I'm in. I can do it.

I finally fixed the door jam between my kitchen and entrance way. Measure, saw, sand, glue. Feels good to have it off my plate.

I am new....I finished the day with eating 200 calories "LESS" than my daily allotment. I wasn`t all that hungry (very unusual) so I figured a little less would be good for me since I tend to go a little over from time to time. emoticon OK...I`ll be honest.......Sometimes I go alot over.

My workout for today...I am usually execising as late as 9:00 p.m. because I keep putting it off for something else but can't go to bed because my brain keeps telling me I need to workout. This morning my friend and I walked out dogs then I went to the YMCA and did some time on the elliptical and stationary bike. Maybe now I can work on finishing the laundry.

I just realized that my goals have been very different from the ones I typically see here.

First, I committed to an image of myself that I wanted to achieve.

Second, I committed to that image for the *rest of my life*.

Third, I committed to a meta-process to achieving the first two, namely that I would try various programs and use them only to the extent that they worked and adjust them, as required, so that progress was continually being made towards 1 and 2. (In this regard SparkPeople offers whole familie*s* of program*s*.)

Fourth, (and this one I had to learn, after using 1 -3 for several months) that at various different points, I had to recognize that I reach plateaus, and when I reached one, I had to adjust what I was doing.

Fifth, I had to learn that plateaus could also be caused not just by weight loss levels, but also by limitations of my body, schedule, family, etc. (How much exercise I could do, and what kinds I can do, time available, ...)

WRT, the question at hand, I've finished the recognition of a plateau. I'm starting various adjustments, and will find out which one(s) work. There's a lot of apparent randomness, here, and sometimes change does not occur for a week or so.

May the fork (and tracker) be with you!

I just finished hauling everything out of the 'throw it in here if I don't know what to do with it' storage closet and divided it - re-store, donate, sell. I worked up quite a sweat.

Since I've fallen off program for several months, that exercise reminded me how good exercise feels. Yep, got a high of good feelings when I finally could see the back of the closet, but not the same type of high.

I just reset my fuzzy goals yesterday with a measurable goal: 130 lbs by 9/4 (my birthday). I have 40 lbs to lose.

Loved the blog. I really have to do better on my long term projects but I'm pretty good at short term things. Yesterday I finished the laundry (there is more already, but yesterday everything on deck got done). Today I've already finished tossing a new recipe for chicken stew in the crock pot for tonight's dinner. One thing I haven't finished yet today is my workout but here I go off to the gym right now!

I just finished making a table runner that I had planned to have done by Christmas. I felt so pleased I had actually finished something (see my blog) that I went to my Sparks page and revised my goals to make them more specific and add a timetable, so I would know when I was "finished" with a goal there.

I want to keep going with that idea for a little while. Have lots more sewing projects and lots more Sparks goals and I would really like to hear how others are making their way through this. Does it work?
So. What have you finished that you want to share? Big, small, we want to hear it all.
