This Sparked Me!

I've learned that setting smaller goals for smaller weight loss in smaller periods of times makes me feel a lot better than one stretching over months. Let yourself see those little steps as they come and when they finally add up to the big one, that is your best reward!

    Plus, you have more reasons to celebrate more often.

    I agree. Adapt the larger goals down to smaller goals and count them as goals met if at all possible.

    you are soooo right! 5 or 10 lbs are not overwhelming and seem attainable. Trying to lose 55 lbs is unimaginable. Nice tip.
