One Day at A Time

When just starting out, the road to losing 20 pounds or more seems to stretch out forever. Obsessively checking for incremental signs of progress along the way isn't going to make that road seem any shorter. Instead of measuring your journey in ounces, set your sights on real milestones. Weigh yourself just once a week. You'll see steady progress over time, not discouraging daily ups and downs. 

Life is in the journey, not the destination, so do what you can and take it one day at a time. Go slow; do it right; make it permanent. Setting goals is essential for living the life of your dreams. How are you going to get anywhere in this life if you don't identify your destination? Think of your ultimate goals as destinations, and your short- and long-term goals as a road map to the life that you want to live.

Have you mapped out your journey from beginning to end - complete with markers and pit stops along the way?
