Break Your Goals Down!

This Sparked Me!

It can be overwhelming if we focus too much on our ultimate goal weight, especially if we have a substantial amount of weight to lose. To prevent discouragement, break that big goal down into smaller, more manageable ones, and set up a reward for every goal reached. Nothing motivates like success!

    i'm so glad i came here this morning & read this .... i get too caught up in the big picture & feel like i'm swimming against a huge tidal wave & it actually tires me mentally & physically & I give up. after i log off, i'm going to use this tip to take the big picture & "cut it up" into puzzle size pieces and try to enjoy the journey rather than stressing over it. thanks! emoticon

    This is emoticon and this is what I am doing ever since I started SP. I have along way to go and it's going to take time, but I am not going to stop. I know that I'm heavy, so I did not stress the measuring. I did weigh my first day, but I will way on my goal date. Eating right and exercising is my goal until then. Continue to do your best emoticon
