No................ I will not, but yes I will try to do it.............again. I am sure we have all heard enough of my saying that this time I am going to do it. This time I will buckle down and do what is required, this time I will not waiver from my goals and my program. No.............I will not say it again

What I will do is stop trying to make a big deal of it and just do what I need to do...............one step at a time, one minute at a time, one hour, day and week at a time. I will stop trying to go intop a full blown program and will take baby steps as everyone has told me to do. I will reread the first step of Sparks and change things one at a time, instead of trying to change everything in one day.

So no more talk of doing it, I am just going to work at changing some small things first and build on the success I have from there.

I have so much to live for, so much I want to do and the only one who can lead me there is ME.....and some good nudges from my buddies.......and the Lord to stand guard, ready to get me back on track. I am finding I need to turn to Him more lately. To tell my troubles too, to ask for guidance and forgiveness, and to help me find the way.

    I myself am guilty of doing the same thing-trying to change too many things at once, or trying to go from 1-2 times a week exercise to 7 days straight. I think baby steps will help us both. Good thing we have SP to guide us!

    Teresa -sounds like you got some good advice today..
    great idea for you to go thru the Sparks steps and ooh yes start with step 1 -phase 1..

    get it into action my dear like everyone here has said..
    do not get discouraged if it doesn't go as planned just keep moving forward.

    and remember what Jillian Micheals says
    "I can not save you- YOU must save yourself"

    but we are here to listen give advise cheer you on..

    go for it!

    Good idea!!!

    If we try to do everything at once, we become overwhelmed and give up. Changing one thing at a time is the perfect way to get back on track!!

    Goodfor you for realizing this and making the change that is best for YOU!!!

    Teresa just keep remembering that every day is a brand new day ... don't worry about yesterday ... don't worry about tomorrow ... stay in the moment, THIS MOMENT and yes live for today.

    I think this is a wonderful plan, just take it one day at a time, and stop trying to work the perfect plan.

    Teresa, you can do it.
    One step at a time.
    Your attitude is what will keep you
    going. Wake with light in your heart
    and know that to day is the day to
    take some positive steps.

    You can do it! Even if you have to "start over" everyday, you are taking step in the right direction. Kudos for keeping on trying!
