New Year, New Me

What is most important is not where you stand, but the direction you're going in - Vickie M. Worsham
So it is 2013 and I have made another plan! I have decided to lose weight - again! I am hopeful and determined, but also a little scared. I have made this pledge many times over the years. I actually thought about it and I realized that I have either been on a diet or planning to be on a diet since I was 14 - which was many moons ago. But part of what I realize is that I can't hold onto the past. If I am eternally dieting, I am constantly searching for the "answer". But I know that there is no magic, only action. So I take this journey one day at a time, and I simply keep moving forward. New Year, New Me I think is less about weight and more about accepting me for all my faults and making sure to applaud my successes. Let go of that critical voice in my head that says I'm a failure - it's ridiculous! I'm proud and successful and determined and human.
