Secrets of Success




I have found that setting 1 long range goal and many short range goals that are attainable at different times helps to keep me motivated and excited about what I'm doing. emoticon

More Information:

Reward yourself for each of those goals. I found that telling all my friends on spark people,Facebook etc is a fun way to be proud of my accomplishments.
Where I workout, they have a saying, Don't reward yourself with food, your not a dog.

  • I would like to add that your weight goals and date really affect the calorie range. I would suggest for those feeling overly hungry set those smaller goals with a slightly longer or more reasonable date range. Especially at first this can mean the difference between staying with it and tossing in the towel. - by SHADELILY
