Set New Goals to Build a Record of Success

I have learned that I too often set goals too high. Constant failure to make the mark discourages me and I fall away from trying. Now I set goals that are attainable, see that I can easily do that, then add a little until it becomes a challenge. I sit at that level until that, too, is easy; increasing in small increments to make it a challenge again. This practice is protecting me from discouragement so I can stay the course. Start small. Build big! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just for Today

I have to think in terms of one day at a time. Just today, I'm going to have a glass of water instead of soda. That's one more glass than I had yesterday. Just today, I'm going to go for a walk. Then, tomorrow, I'll remember how good it felt to get out for ten minutes at lunch and walk and I'll have that glass of water again and it turns to habit- a healthy habit. I can't put a deadline on losing weight bc when I slip up even once or twice, I get disappointed and give up.
