I found setting specific,measurable goals was very helpful for me. When I started I created the following:

1) My ultimate long-term goal
2) 12 month goal
3) 3 month goal
4) Weekly goals
5) Daily goals

This February was one year since I started my fitness plans, and I recently pulled out my goals and realized I met some of them and failed in others, and was able to take a step back and get on track again.

I let the married life and stress of working for a living be my excuse for not having time to excercise, and ten years later I was 270 lbs with high blood pressure and was worried about being around for my kids when they were older.

Now I make sure I find time to excercise and have made eating healthy a part of my lifestyle, since "diets" don't work and usually fail. Now the gym time is "my" time - just for me - and is very theraputic.
