It's the start of a new year, new outlook, renewed faith, renewed energy. I've come a long way over the past six months since joining Sparkpeople.com, learning so much about myself and how to take better care of myself in order to live a long and prosperous life. Faith in God, good nutrition, daily exercise, patience, tolerance, determination, support of family, a sense of humor are some of the key ingredients that helped me take the small steps to reach my short term goals which will ultimately lead me to reach my long term goal. Challenges are many. One of the most difficult is refraining from "emotional eating". But each day I try dilligently to overcome this. As most will agree, this is not an easy task. So, celebrate each day, each accomplishment. For today, like every day, is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
