A secret for success in my life regarding health and fitness has been the use of SparkPeople as a way of connecting with others, throughout the world, who are in the same boat as I. This community of supportive believers in good health through diet and exercise has been for me a well-house of information, support and great conversation. I have been able to connect with people who have the same interests as I and who support me and encourage me in my diet and exercise goals.
When seeking motivation to achieve a goal - say a dietary goal or a weight loss goal - I place the goal within grasp. I don't create a goal for myself that is too difficult and I don't put it too far out in the future. Loosing 5 to 7 lbs is a good goal and two weeks is not too far out there, I set the goal and then pursue it doggedly. When that goal is reached I can set another. For me, short bursts of energy is the key.
Set goals. One of the secrets to being successful in a lifestyle change is to set goals. Set a long term goal first this is the ultimate goal. Then set several intermediate goals. These will be easier to reach thus helping you feel successful along the way. Then add a dose of perseverance.
