I do my best to be consistent all the time but sometimes it's so difficult. I just hope that I can persevere .

so funny that i found this article. oh yesterday my husband was just saying in bible study that it's the small things you do that can add up to big change. He wasn't talking about weight loss, but I made it to apply to me. I'm going to remember this daily.
I really needed to read this today!! I have been consistent but I have been feeling like my consistency isn't going to pay off! I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing and I know I will make it to my goal!
Consistency is something I struggle with constantly. I've even joked about adding a "Diet of the Week" sign to my desk. Thanks for the reminder that the small things add up and help build good long-lasting habits.
Couldn't agree more. Consistency for me = routine. I usually do very well on working days. Get up early, 45 mins exercise, get things ready, breakfast, leave home for work. As soon as it hits weekends and I am out of my work days routine, boom! I struggled. I need to start developing the routine for weekends.
This is exactly what I'm working on and so far it's working. By far the best approach I've taken to being/becoming consistant with anything and I have to say breaking everything into small chunks is really working for me. I had to remind myself several times not to have an "all or nothing" mentality.
Of all of the awards that I can earn through Spark each month, the consistency award is the most important one to me. Even if I am plateaued or fighting to lose or barely holding on by my fingernails, getting that Consistency Award tells me that I AM going to achieve my goals.

It seems like a giant task but it actually is a series of small steps that contribute to success.
This came in my e-mail this morning and it couldn't have been better timing! This is EXACTLY what I needed help with today. I've been having so many issues with consistency, but the ideas is this article will definitely give me a boost.
I agree full well - consistancy is the key , unfortunately my consistancy is making excuses. I know, I'm working on getting rid of old excuses and tapes that kept me where I am or was. Cant say I am still in the dumps , I'm a member of spark people. Yay So starting monday I am going to add a goal I have it on my page but havent tracked it for 28 days. that goal is working out by stretching at least 10 minutes a day. I'm hoping that will lead to me using my gym membership which is already paid for to join a yoga or kick boxing class as well as enjoy poll arobics.
One step at a time one day at a time. Thanks spark guy.
