25 Ways to Get Back on Track Today

Don't Give Up on Your Goals!


  • I really like the comment about "winning a few more points than you lose" ... that's a great perspective. Thanks!! - 11/19/2012 3:22:04 PM
  • I am also grateful for this article.

    Having physical issues makes the exercise a lot harder to get at, but I am doing what I can. Hoping to get to a bit more before long.

    Also most of the time I am eating reasonably, but as you say, am making some mistakes.

    Tomorrow, since I am done eating for today, I will track my food.

    Tomorrow, I will exercise a bit more.

    Reminder, Progress, not perfection.

    Thanks for this.

    Boy, did I ever need this article today!!! Seems like my whole life is about trying to get back on track. - 11/12/2012 1:03:12 PM
  • Kick starting myself with a challenge to not gain any weight between now and New Years Day... I've worked to hard to work it off to gain it back!! - 11/12/2012 11:47:08 AM
  • Thank you so much for this article! It nearly brought me to tears to be reminded to just start anywhere.

    I've been feeling like such a failure as I keep trying huge changes and falling on my face. Lately I've even been afraid to start trying again, assuming I'll fail again.

    Today I will do three small things toward getting back on track. That feels so doable it's exciting. - 11/12/2012 11:43:57 AM
  • Perfect timing...I'm starting "fresh" today :) - 11/12/2012 9:52:50 AM

    be calm, cool, collected - 11/12/2012 7:28:23 AM
  • i really didn't "fall off the wagon" just started tracking on several sites and at times couldn't get signed in an got frustrated. - 11/1/2012 1:23:16 PM
    Just right. A little push. - 11/1/2012 10:41:18 AM
  • Thank you its a great article. - 10/13/2012 12:30:24 PM
  • Thanks! I needed that today. - 9/25/2012 8:28:54 PM
  • Perfect timing for me. I just revisited SP today and am determined to do whatever it takes this time. I need to stay motivated for me, my hubby, and my family. My health is at stake and I want to be ME again!

    I have a lot to lose, but even more to lose if I don't stay motivated and lose this weight. I am keeping my eyes on the goal. I have set a series of short goals for myself. I have a long way to go and can't look at a long-term goal yet -- baby steps for me. - 9/25/2012 2:11:03 PM
    Just less than one year ago I was seven pounds from my goal weight of 175 pounds, started new medication and its just gone downhill from there. I am off the medication now but have creeped over the 200 pound mark by five pounds!! HELP!! I need to get back on track but have lost all the enthusiasm! - 9/25/2012 1:14:55 PM
  • 25 ways..... WOW what perfect timing! I have been a sparker since 3-16-12 & this past weekend was the worst as far as eating goes! I had a good reason to share the ribs with my Love.(i know THERE IS NEVER A GOOD REASON FOR OVER EATING) He made them, first time since his back surgery 10-4-11. He was SO proud to be able to stand long enough to create them! ( I don't usually eat hoofed animals). I thought I'll have 1, they were so tasty it turned into 7! I've had to move calories to the next few days just to cover it all. So egg whites, & chicken & broccoli & fruit have been my main stay for 2 days, now. I DO UNDERSTAND THIS IS NOT THE WAY TO RELEASE WEIGHT! I have turned into an athlete wanta be, so I just added 10 extra minutes onto my walk-run AND swimming for the past few days.

    I have done almost all 25 of these things to get it together, again! Before I read this, this morning. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR THIS AMAZING SUPPORT! I LOVE SPARK PEOPLE! - 9/25/2012 12:45:02 PM
