Loved this article.... besides,
There's an enormous amount of great motivational "stuff" on Spark People - and the more I read, the more I understand about "The Journey" towards a healthier me.
I began this trip as a way to make me be accountable to myself for the things I was eating every day. As I read it became very apparent that I was missing most of the picture...goal setting was a huge part. I have an "End Goal" but have taken the advice of "10% Goals" in the interim. That's working for me. I watch my daily/weekly calorie deficit like a madwoman... I also have a weekly goal to have a deficit every week - the amount is not always fixed because life is different week to week... but EVERY week has the deficit goal. Since I started in February of this year, there have been only 3 weeks that I didn't log a deficit - and all three weeks I was travelling. The goal then shifts, to make that up in the following week or two.... it's always with the "End Goal" in mind.
IT CAN BE DONE - You can do whatever you make your mind up to do!! Thanks Sparkers!!
