And so it begins - but it is all new. Realization has dawned that I have been defeating myself. I am starting a journey to become my own best friend -- for life. You love a best friend, you care for and nurture a best friend. That, I believe, is the anwer to reaching my goal weight and fitness level, and it is the key to the elusive happiness I have been seeking. So, it's taken me 54 years to finally figure it out. That's okay, because I am going to spend the rest of my life enjoying ...

When the sun comes up each day, be up and out with it! Try to get five servings of fruits and vegetables a day! Don't forget to drink eight glasses a water a day! A change from unhealthy habits to healthy habits will yield extraordinary results!!!

Every day brings another chance to take our lives in a new direction. We need to keep an eye out for those opportunities and take advantage of them when we see them and not let them pass us by.

The secret is to "live life in the present, but look to the future." It's important to contemplate about the goals and desires we wish to accomplish in the next year of two and decide what we can do today to make it easier to reach those dreams.

Please join me in working hard to keep those words in mind as we go through each day. Stay positive, my LEMON friend!
