Recently, I've made 'small' but important changes. Like: change from 2% milk to 1% , then to skim. Toast tastes just as good with a thin skim of oleo, not slathered on. Ice milk or frozen yogurt is as tasty as ice cream. Have cereal for snack in place of salty, fatty snacks.

During a children's moment each Sunday at my Church the children collect change in cans for special events. This year we have collected enough change to purchase and fill with school supplies 80 backpacks for the needy in our community, 2 wheelchairs for a special projects and send 6 youth to camp.
So small change does go a long way.
When you begin to make lifestyle changes whether it's getting healthy physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, or taking control of finances,or education take the time to recognize the success in even the smallest of changes. Getting excited about the smallest of changes is a lot more healthy than dwelling negatively on were you are vs were you want to be. Positive thinking prompts positve changes. Stay focused, stay encouraged. Remember even the smallest of change is a success.
The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. Benjamin Mays
