  • 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
  • Thanks again for helpful info that can be easily implemented. - 10/12/2009 7:07:43 AM
  • a wonderful reminder for me, a beginer. Baby steps, and small changes will be the only way to completly reinvent my life, and that is my Major goal in all of this. - 9/6/2009 8:48:05 PM
  • 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. - 9/6/2009 7:04:48 PM
  • I'm going to try not hitting the infamous snooze button!
    Great read...its better to start small than to go big and hard right off the bat and set yourself up for major set backs and inconsistensies. - 9/6/2009 12:39:07 PM
  • This was a very encouraging article. I have a lot of weight to lose. I think the idea of having several small successes would help me stick to it. Thanks - 8/20/2009 10:23:24 PM
  • I was doing pretty good with my weight loss exercises, then; somehow----- I tweaked my back and could hardly MOVE for over a week, now I'm starting kind of all over again ; and needed this to remind me--- TAKE IT SLOW AND EASY. Thank you - 8/20/2009 8:03:15 PM
  • This article's a great inspiration. I recently started adding running to my walks. I'm taking it slow-which is hard for me, but so far, no injury and no feeling burned out. - 8/20/2009 6:15:48 PM
  • 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. - 8/20/2009 5:37:01 PM
  • After beating myself up for the past 24 hours, I take a look at this list and am amazed at how many are habits after Sparking seriously since May. Wow! I think this is working! - 8/20/2009 4:27:45 PM
  • getting up without the snooze -may be simple... but so far impossible for me. - 8/20/2009 2:53:28 PM
  • Thanks for the article. I have been working on a few of these suggestions already. I will continue to add the others. - 8/20/2009 12:13:46 PM

    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.
