The concept sounds promising.

I feel a little put off when I see all the people under the logo. I am not a people person at all; almost asocial. I decided to check the challenge out all other the same. I am a very organized person who tends to great programs to meet long-term goal. It might be fun to try creating "programs" for small goals.

Hi, I just joined Small Goals team as I have been at a stand still for quite awhile. I have lost 23 pounds but have been dealing with ankle pain after surgery 3 years ago. I love to walk and use my stationery bike. I am 75 yrs. young but determined to get another 30-40 lbs off of this body! Happy Monday! emoticon

Just joined Small Goals Challenge. Trying to increase my activity and get in more exercise. I have been a Spark Member since 2009 and It is amazing to me to believe that I have really lost 40 pounds since I first began! Go Spark!

Good Morning everyone! Just signed in as new to the team! Sounds like a good plan 1 small goal at a time! Mine is to get under 180 before I start the 5% CHALLENGE .

I still have a lot to learn as I can not get my yoyo eating in check yet---yet!

I've been doing a lot of bead work lately and have come to discover that my work bench is not optimized for my comfort. In fact, it is causing a lot of pain from my hips to my shoulder blades. Last night, the pain was not allowing my to get to sleep. I got up and did all the core stretches without the dumbbells and found that the stress on my muscles was greatly relieved. These are easy exercises which did not ramp up my adrenaline, but worked wonders! will try these tonight.
Meanwhile, I am rearranging some items under my work bench to allow me to sit more closely and relief the strain on my back.

Thank you SKYVALLEYGAL and Nancy, for the Birthday wishes
.
Trying to recommit everyday! Back was hurting this AM from exercises done yesterday so put a heating pad on for 15 minutes and now it is fine. Will start a little slower today, BUT I will get something done. Went for a short walk after dinner last night and that felt good.

Have a great MONDAY and the rest of the week! emoticon

Good to see you on here Donna!

Today August 5th I am recommitting to SMALL goals. I bit off more than I could chew trying to push myself on a challenge. And though I dropped all the weight in 4 weeks rather than 8...It just deterred me from my joy of doing it for myself.

This will be a good time to get back to basics.

looking for friends to connect with, get to know, and encourage each other along this journey. :-)
Blessings

Getting started today! Have reset my short term weight loss goal and my exercise goal. Not sure what I consider short term, what are the rest of you using. A month, or 3 or 6?
Look forward to hearing from you.

I have been around for a long time and am active in the community regularly when I have the time. When life gets particularly challenging, I post less and focus more on tracking. I love the idea of small goals that will fit into my busy life.

Just found this team today and love the goal and energy/participation of the team. I have been floundering about a bit lately without having clear cut motivation or direction but thankfully have managed to eat well and maintain. But that is not the life I really desire, I want to thrive! So work to be done and having small goals will get me there!

Thank you so much Chris for Sparkpeople and all you do here ... it definitely has changed my life and I see only improvement ahead!

I also love this team and the concept thanks again to Spark Guy! .... I have been so inspired that this keeps me inspired, and on track. As he once said, "Exercise begets more exercise." ... I may start out with ten minutes ......But it is hard to stop at the ten minutes. No one will pull us over for going into over-time ... emoticon ... And Terri, you are right ....... together as a team there is strength! emoticon

I've been away from Sparkpeople for quite some time managing chronic health issues ( still ongoing but better now) and growing out of major depression ( no need for more help, I am moving out of it now). Today I prayed," Lord, if time is right for my energy to be back with Sparkpeople, give me a reason." I noticed an email notifying me of a message a sparkfriend sent me and hopped on here to find not only her message but this powerful challenge. Thank you for designing the challenge with guidelines in a way that I can use in my lifestyle that demands flexibility and accountability. I know together we are stronger. This is going to be fun!

This sounds GREAT and exactly what I'm needing! My focus has been hard to find lately and my willpower is playing hide-and-seek with me. I've recently realized that I'm truly a sweets addict (no joke) and joined a group to try to figure out some ways to deal with the addiction. And I've announced at home that I'm putting my house back in order....meals, food pantry, exercising, all of it. My joy is in routines and list making. Yep, I'm a little OCD and a lot boring.
Thanks again for inviting me into your group.

the scales seems stuck which leads me to stress eating and then beating my self up reading your post and getting my act together discovered having to many goals and not watching for the the little goals i reach even though non scales in time may get the scales moving. i am a taster as cook . tried a tip my grandmother shared many years ago when you taste as you cook put amount on a plate . i learned i can sample a snack as I cook started a streak I have gone 22 days with nothing on the plate and teaspoon one before i caught my self have always tasted the pasta to sure it cooked not letting one noodle get me.

I'm 55 and I know how important weight training is. I've religiously been doing it for four weeks now and have been gaining weight. I KNOW it's muscle because I have not eaten over my calorie allotment. I just need to stay positive until the fat starts to burn. The positivity of this team seems really encouraging.

This is great. I celebrate my 2 year Sparkversary next month and I must say that lately I have gotten lazy about revisiting, revising and paying attention to my goals. This should get me back on track. Perfect timing. I've excited about this team.

Theresa, I find it surprising that you posted such comments and feel that one reason may be that you, yourself, may be lacking in confidence that you can lose the weight you need to lose to get to a healthy weight. While I was lucky that I didn't have much weight to lose I had dragons that I needed to slay in order to make my goal and was successful. I wrote a blog about how I gained the confidence to slay my dragons. Please visit www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
ur
nal_individual.asp?blog_id=6381542
. PS think this team will attract spark members who have a positive attitude and while having a good supportive team is important, 99% of the battle depends on on yourself having confidence and a positive attitude, and that is what only you can control. You can do it.

Love the logo and the idea of small goals

I have a goal of passing my streak of 89 days logging on = am now at day 74

I have another small goal of no pop = am on day 244 which is a good streak

Another small goal for me is to stay on my plan which is 'getting back to the basics - 15 healthy habits to follow = am on day 36 and going for 100

Thanks Chris for starting Sparkpeople and all the work you put into making this a great place to come to

This sounds good to me!

I used to be really organized and focused about my goals... but grew too complacent; and as a result, things started spiraling downward. This team sounds like a great way to build up the positive momentum.

Just getting back in Spark after many years of absence. I'm hoping it not only helps with the weight loss, but with organization, motivation, and inspiration too. This team will be a great way to reinforce my goals and aspirations!

I was hoping for a team like this. I am struggling and need accountability. Working on short term goals will help me reach my mid term goals and eventually my long term goals. I like your set up and what you have planned. Thank you for making its team.

Sounds wonderful and I agree that being accountable and staying motivated is essential to success whether it is short-term or long-term.
On July 1 I started doing a makeover to my typical daily menu plan and expect to see some good results! Thank you for starting this team and also for the invitation! I appreciate it!

Hi Everyone

Here are guidelines for this team:
1) Goals
The goal of the team is to have a place where you can track your goals from the 4 Cornerstones of the SparkPeople Fuel for Improvement System. My hope is that even seeing this framework regularly will encourage you to look at life in a different, more comprehensive way than you might have in the past. Then tracking goals from the 4 Cornerstones will help you stay accountable and motivated -- and earn SparkPoints!

2) How much to do
IMPORTANT: You don't need to do everything each day! Just do whatever you feel comfortable doing. You'll notice over time that some of the items get easier. For example, visualizing reaching a goal can take a few seconds. On busy days, just click the Commitment Button as your participation.

3) Fitness & Health Cornerstone
For the Fitness & Health Cornerstone items, these are vague checklists items. The idea is to show you each of these 5 possible areas to spark a comprehensive fitness and health program. Tracking can be different for different people. For example, one person may choose to check these off when they do anything in that category (10 minutes of fitness, eat a healthy food, get good enough sleep, etc. Another person might want to be stricter with that tracking and only check off nutrition if he/she stays within a calorie range.

How does this sound?
