Lose 20 pounds sounds great on January 1 but by January 24 we're floundering around, discouraged, wondering "How the heck do you lose 20 pounds?" Better to start with one manageable good habit like "Walk for 10 minutes each day" and, when that one has become a part of our life add another one. The idea is that all these little, manageable goals can add up to the big goal.
