What I've Learned Along the Way

I keep a journal with what I call little insights, those 'aha' moments. It can be about anything from tips I read about keeping the dryer screen clean to something really big like realizing how I use my obesity to keep me from even trying whatever because I'm so afraid to fail.

Share your goals!

In the past, my decision to get healthy (working out) was something I pretty much kept to myself. This time, I told so many people about my goals! My hubby, my daughter, my best friend... and I posted the goals here on SP. What a difference this has made. Now others support and encourage me.

being believed in

It's one of the most known but little appreciated parts of raising a healthy, happy child. Most successful adults commonly credit their success with people in their lives who they felt "really cared for and believed in them".

Brag about your accomplishments

Tell the world how awesome you are, even if it's for something small. Post it in your status, shout it out in your blog. Give yourself the praise you deserve! Toot your own horn! This will help you focus on the positives rather than focusing on the work remaining to be done.

HAVE A BUDDY

It is so much easier to follow through on what you want to do when you have someone who will check up on you and that you can check up on to see how you are doing. It is so nice to have someone who will cheer you on and give you the motivation you need to continue.

Set short-term goals and blog them.

Set a small number of short-term goals and write a blog about them. This exercise is great for improving accountability.
