Starting Small is No Bull

Start Slow for BIG Results


    Superb article. I feel rejuvenated and happy again. I've only lost 16 ponds, but I did it slowly and steadily, so I know that this is what's best for me! - 4/12/2010 6:07:16 PM
  • Small and steady wins the race. Remember that from the "Tortoise and the Hare"? I have to remember that when I get negative. - 4/11/2010 3:04:28 AM
  • This article is right on time for me. I decided day before yesterday that to keep me from eating mindlessly, I would stop eating when I am on the computer. If I want to eat anything I will take it to my table. So many times I had eaten a whole pkg of chips or candy without realizing it until I reached into an empty bag. My 1st day of doing this was yesterday and I made it! - 4/10/2010 3:45:55 PM
  • This is an article I really needed to read today. I know the logic of taking small steps but have been impatiently taking a gazzilion small steps at once --and consequently getting myself frustrated-- this is a good reminder to step back and take it slow one baby step at a time-- Great article -- thanks. - 4/10/2010 2:23:24 PM
  • I am in total agreement. Small steps make the big goal so much more manageable. That's why my spark page shows only 5 lbs to lose, I actually have more like 20-25 to lose but I'm concentrating on just 5 at a time, so it's not so overwhelming! - 1/8/2010 10:36:39 PM
  • Didn't quite catch the "People who won’t go to the dentist will jab needles in their face for a fast way to look good." comment, but overall the article's message was well received. Thanks! - 1/8/2010 6:52:29 PM
  • Thanks!! I have realized all the same things you change in your life will make a big different in the long run! I am trying to drink 8 cups of water a day and that is a BIG step for me! :) - 1/8/2010 1:05:18 PM
  • I choose gathering some motivating music. Great project to further my slow lift off which begins as i am bedridden for a few days. Already drinking 8. - 1/8/2010 10:45:50 AM

    Just what I needed! Thanks, Mike :) I've chosen the far, so good! - 12/17/2009 8:37:14 AM
  • Thanks for the great article! - 10/22/2009 9:51:39 PM
  • It seems our society does not recognize small accomplishments and that is our mindset towards fitness. I want to be fit overnight, however, it took me 10 years to undo my fitness. This article is really great. I have only been in SparkPeople for 2 days and already I am feeling good about small accomplishments - logging food, walking 2 days in a row, earning spark points. Fitness is 90% mindset and that will propel you to action! - 10/12/2009 11:23:13 AM
    Thanks for the article. I just started trying to run/walk a mile yesterday. Took me 18 minutes. I was a bit disappointed at first, but reading other's blogs/posts makes me feel a bit better. - 10/12/2009 8:55:45 AM
