Seems doable to me.
Great article. Applicable to all areas of life. Reminds me of one of my favorite FB pages: Attainable Sustainable. Your goals and life choices must be attainable to be sustainable!

This totally plays into the slow and steady motto. 10% is realistic and doable for most people. Conquer the first ten, then go for the next. Pretty soon you'll be in maintenance mode!!!
This seems so doable, but I have a very tough time with losing any weight--but going to try this
This seems like something I can accomplish! Here we go!
Some interesting points to consider.
Still working on 80/20/10 I posted previously.
80% healthful habits
20% splurge or treats
10% weight loss goal at any time
Sounds like a good plan!
Glad I found this today. I was starting to feel overwhelmed. I can do 10%. I know can!
I think even I could do the 10% plan
Finally, a plan that is possible. Calculate my goal and make it happen. Did not read about a time limit. Even more possible. ❤️😇👍
My 10% would be 19.9 pounds so 20 pounds is my goal by December 25th! I've already lost 3 lbs so I'm on my way!
Hey I LOST 5% + .8 lbs. for a total of -10.8 lbs.on the 2018 5% Summer Challenge ,LOSING WT. EVERY WEEK BY TRACKING EVERY FOOD AND ACTIVITY, so, I AM HAPPY! And I think MOST PEOPLE would be HAPPY with a TEN pound LOSS!!! I am only about SIX lbs. to my Final GOAL WEIGHT so, I think it is all how YOU LOOK AT the numbers!!!
