I not only needed this article, but learned serveral very good points about goal setting.
I particularly liked the idea of support buddies. Not everyone that is a SP Buddy on my SP page is actually a support buddy. Perhaps we should have another button on my SP page that reads, "Will be a Goal Support Buddy" or "Goal Support Buddy"....we could help each other with specific goals, etc. Great article, keep them coming. I love the specific helps and suggestions.

He is right about everything and I am living proof that it works. I bought one of those two year calendars in the drugstore. Every Saturday morning I weighed myself. By seeing the pounds come off, it was such a motivator (my only regret is that i did not measure myself with a tape measure before i started losing weight so I can only guess how many inches lost). Also I agree with him about doing one step at at time. I started dieting first to get use to it then I started excercing. And since my whole office was trying to lose weight at the time, that was my buddy system.

I really like the goal to not hit the snooze button! I think I'm going to incorporate that into my list! :o)

I set goals instead of resolutions this year. Goals are positive and an achievement. I am working towards them. Resolutions sound like punishments!

I am taking copies of this article to my" healthy lifestyles" support group at church. I'm sure it will be of great value to us as we set our goals for the new year. Thank you for sharing the spark!
