this was just what I needed today. I feel bad when i slack for a couple of days but I have to remind myself that I am not going to change my life overnight. I have to chip away at the rock that shape it into what I want not try to blast it with dynamite.
Thanks for the article. I have been working on a few of these suggestions already. I will continue to add the others.

Because of articles like yours and the SparkPeople magnificent website, I am thrilled to let everyone know that I have only two items to accomplish from your list: put up pictures and listen to motivating music.
This time I know I will make it to the finish line.
Thank you for writing such inspiring peices. I have not been on SP long but I've noticed most of the articles that catch my eye have been written by you. Thank you and keep them coming! Super simple techniques that are achievable by ANYONE!
I love your articles and this one is no exception! Thank you for all the wonderful ideas. I will be trying that no-snooze button for sure tomorrow morning. Your opening lines were wonderful, btw, and I laughed out loud when I got to the sentence about being trampled in five steps. That's how I've felt lately. :-) I really appreciate the encouragement.

Thank you for this reminder. I was discouraged right before reading this. I was looking at a challenge where I could get a star for every 30 minutes of exercise. People were doing 1-3 hours--I can barely do 15-20 minutes. I forgot I have to start where I am and I can only do what I can do today. I work 12 hour shifts so it is quite difficult to get any exercise in, much less 3 hours.

The beauty - and "workability" - of powerful, well-directed, simple strategies - Thanks for this gem!
