First day

Sunday, December 09, 2018

I am trying again to be a healthier me. Today is the first day. I've had far too many first days. I am hoping this sticks for a while. If I can keep life from knocking me down, I hope to give myself a year here. Food has been my comfort, my best friend, my enemy. I am hoping to change some bad habits over the next year that go beyond food, but this is my start. I hope to have more energy, not rely on food to give me a high, to feel better about myself, and to set good examples for my kids. I am starting today by tracking meals. I'm not sure where this will go from here, but at least I will be more aware of what i am putting in my mouth, and why.

    Welcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. You have to make you #1 and tell yourself that you are worth it. And remember you didn't gain the weight overnight and you won't lose it overnight. It takes time, determination, motivation and support. You can get it all right here! If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else. If I can help in anyway, feel free to reach out to me! You can do it! We are here to help!

    Welcome! I have had so many restarts and first days. Track away and smile and know that it helps. Sometimes quick, sometimes slow. Just remember slow and steady wins the race. You’ve got this!
