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.

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!

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!

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! :)

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.

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!

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.

This is a timely article for me. No way can I join in 10,000 or even 5,000 step a day challenges, but thanks to this reminder I know that each step I take is one step closer to those goals.
