It's a New Day!

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Nothing can be accomplished if we give up, so today's a new day, and I'm not giving up. I also know it's easier, and more fun, to have a partner through life's stages, so I've gotten me a weight loss partner, actually 4 of them.

We've started a weight loss challenge at work; we all have the same goal, to feel better and be healthier. Of course, I'm the oldest, but that's okay. When the challenge is over in 12 weeks, we will have lost weight, we will feel better, we'll have stories to tell, and we'll earn a few bucks since my company has something called "healthy rewards" where you can earn money for completing health courses and challenges.

I have gained 50 pounds in a year. Unbelievable! But, it's a new day, and it's been a successful day. Here's to tomorrow.

    I'm 52, expecting our second grandchild, and have had symptoms and blood tests that let me know that my heart is in danger if I don't change. That really lit a fire under me as far as my health goals go. What you said about today being a new day is true every single day. I want to encourage you to grasp that truth every day. That truth has kept me moving forward even on the days that I wake up knowing that I messed up the day or night before with food. I will be praying for you and hope that you will pray for me that we can continue to move steadily in the right direction so our loved ones can have us in their lives for a very long time. They need us. Also, your username, FARABOVERUBIES, struck my soul in a good way. That's how God and our loved ones see us. Seeing that name gave me a boost.

    God bless you!
