"Set your goals-without goals you can't measure your
progress. But don't become
frustrated if the victories don't come quickly or easily.
Remind yourself that
striving can be more important than arriving. If you are
excellence-if you are trying your best day by day with
the wisest use of your
time and energy to reach realistic goals-you are a
success, and you can feel
proud of your accomplishments."

Grandchildren - A method that works...
For the past few days, I have been helping tend Sarah's 3 little ones...oldest being "4" years old...(smile) (now, there are "4"...as of YESTERDAY...and I can hardly wait to HOLD her for the next coming days...while I am here in IDAHO) (smile) Anyway, running after little ones...has certainly helped with my WEIGHT LOSS...I weighed in YESTERDAY......(Can't this morning, til Luke gets up, since the scale is in their master bathroom)...so I will base my loss on yesterday's weigh-in...I have lost another "2" pounds...making it a grand total of "6" pounds...since January 1st...I am THRILLED...My goal for the month of JANUARY was "4" pounds, so I feel VERY GOOD that I am at least "progressing".... I saw this quote this morning in my email box...thought...it would be perfect to share here...in regards to GOALS:
