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.

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

Just concentrate on not getting run over by the bulls

I think this is going to become my motto!

very motivating...i'm always thinking all or nothing - but i have to realize it's the little things that add up to something big!

Starting small sounds good. Just joined & it's hard not to want to be perfect in all aspects.
