What an awesome article! This is exactly what I started doing when I "re-started" my healthy lifestyle. The weight is coming off slowly and it's much easier to stick with the changes I've made this way. 3 months later, I'm down 20 pounds without barely any effort. That's what small changes can do!

This is such a great reminder because this is a lifestyle change not a diet and I don't want it to end !!! Report
This is so great . I'm going to do this Report
Goal by goal is the way to go! Report
I printed this to keep a daily reminder. Excellent challenge. Report
A great and very inspiring article! It is surely true that sometimes small things can work big on the way to success. These simple bits of advices are very helpful. Thanks! Report
Great use of visualization in the article. Thanks for the encouragement. Report
Love this article! Thank you. I needed that. I am plateauing for a bit, but I see I am at least drinking the water almost everyday. :D Report
I started on 7/26. My first step was research how many calories I really need a day to lose weight. Once I decided what was best for me, I have been focusing on staying within my range of daily calories. Right now it is about how much I eat and not so much what I eat. Once my body accepts a lower calorie eating plan, I will go on to my next step. Getting overwhelmed only leads to failure and even weight gain. Report
Slowly is the only speed at which to augment real, lasting change. My accomplishment, 3 days into this weight loss journey, is to walk my daughter to and from school. A big steep hill is involved. Good for me -- good for both of us! This is where and how it begins. Report
This is the way I started off 15 minutes of walking up to 45 now. I think that is good in 3+weeks. I now enjoy it and feel better about myself and know I'm going to stick with this. Report
This is exactly how I started this time- a small commitment to exercise for at least 10 minutes every day. At the end of the first month, I had lost two inches from my waist! Since then, I've continued with the exercise and I now track my food. Thirteen pounds are gone and I'm still going strong! Starting small is the ONLY way to start! Report
This was exactly what I needed today. I have always been the "all or nothing" type of person. I am going to work on a couple of small things at first and build up to more. Report
This article really struck a cord. I'm always in a hurry. 0 to 100 mph. great advice in this article and going to take it to heart. Report
AMEN, This time around I'm not looking for quick fixes and quick results. This is a life change I'm doing and it's going to take time to reprogram. Thank you! Report
