Oh, yeah, I’m so ready to have a new habit, a new attitude, concerning my own personal health! Things I’m doing differently is that I’m setting definite goals, albeit realistic ones. Instead of just saying I’m going to lose weight, I AM going to lose 8 lbs this month. I don’t see how I CANNOT lose 8 lbs if I am walking 30 min every day and making good diet choices ~ not overeating, not eating for emotional reasons, not eating large portions or seconds, limiting junk food and sugars, etc.
I’m not keeping it a secret. I’m being bold and telling everyone I am going to lose 30 lbs by June 1st so that I have accountability!
Most importantly, I want to learn to focus on life and not on food. I want to create new healthy habits that begin today and last me the rest of my life. Time’s a wastin’ and I can’t turn back the clock but I CAN make the best use of TODAY and create a better future for me. A future free of heart disease and high blood pressure and a million other things. Because it is the right thing to do! No matter the outcome. It’s the right choice and I’m on the road to a better healthier life!
