Secrets of Success

Go For The 'Mini-Goals'




We all try to 'GO FOR THE GOAL', but it always seems so far away. If we choose 'mini-goals' for which to work, it sure makes the process more enjoyable. If you have 75 lbs to lose, it can mess with your head because we think that it will take us a long time to reach it, and get totally bummed. However, if you choose a mini-goal to work for, you have more joyful occasions that will help keep you motivated to work toward that ultimate goal.

More Information:

If you start at 223, the first mini-goal might be at 220, then maybe 215. Then when you get to 200, you can have a little bit bigger celebration!!

Working toward those mini-goals sure does help me!

  • Great idea! I have over 100 pounds to lose. I have been trying all of my life to lose weight, so I think I have tried everything there is. I have even been on Sparkpeople for over a year, and still haven't managed to lose much yet. Anything I can do to help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, - by ROSEPETALS4ME
