I've learned to celebrate the small accomplishments. If you don't you'll get so discouraged and give up and I have many times. Always appreciate the smallest accomplishments ex. 5lb's lost.

I'm printing this list out and taping it to my bathroom mirror, my computer screen, my dashboard in my car, my refrigerator... just to remind me to try to take these baby steps every day. Thanks for a great article!

I love the running of the bulls analogy! I've been "trampled" so many times! This article helps to put things in perspective. Thanks!

Thank you, for this article. I really will follow the easy steps first, success has always been a not fast enough deal for me. I am one of those people that would love to have everything that I work hard for yesterday. This thinking needs to be adjusted for me and your article has given me the tools to do so. Thank You, Lori721

Thanks, it's exactly what I needed to read today. I expected MUCH better results this weigh-in (my 2nd-to3rd week with SP but lost no weight.-despite my efforts.....this just makes me want to work harder. Self pity yesterday, kick butt today.

starting off slow is less intimidating and makes it easier to actually get started on a plan.

Good article.
It's a proven fact that its better to start out slow , then gradually pick up the pace
It makes it easier to stay with something using that technique.

How perfectly true. I love the analogy of running with the bulls. That's been by approach for years. And sure enough, I quickly fail/burn out within a few days. Hmm.. Good food for thought.

I avoided not reading this article for so long! I am one of those "Fast and furious" people, and I just didn't think I needed an article about small steps. This was a great article, however. I ended up taking most of the suggestions and putting them into my "goals" list! I DID need this article, didn't I?

Great article. I loved reading motivational books by OG MANDINO. They were simple, so this was simple and I can do SIMPLE.
