  • I printed this out and it looks like a really good tool to reteach me some new habits. I know in the past I have had the fear of being alone. At least with the overeating, I could comfort myself that I wasn't really such a loser. If I was too fat, it was a good excuse to cover up my failures. Mostly, people just overlooked me and I was content with that.
    Why now to start again? Because I am done with my own personal fears. Food is not as good as a new friend and it will never take that place. So I redid my goals and made them specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and timely to me. Thanks for this article. It really got me motivated.
  • I've printed this out and it will be taped to a wall for all to see. Excellent!!!!!! So many uses. Thank you for such useful, informative, amazing articles. And its all available to anyone with access to a computer!!!!
  • Excellent article. It was a much needed read for me. To commit to small attainable goals is something I need to do. It was do or die for me in the past. Then quit and have a lot of self recrimination. Facing the truth and what works and what doesn't sometimes it is very hard.
    I have finally reached a place in time of my life to get it done.

    I don't have any smart goals. I do have a generic goal of wanting to lose weight by my 40th Birthday. I believe I am afraid of committing to smart goals. Afraid of being ACCOUNTABLE and afraid of FAILURE. For all of these years on and off again at Sparkpeople, I have never totally committed and or stuck with any changes. Something has to give!

    This was a great article that really got me thinking. I don't have any measurable goals.

    I love this! I am a teacher and set SMART goals with my students twice a year. I never thought to apply the strategy to my fitness and weight loss goals. Thank you!
