Don't Postpone Success

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, August 25, 2013



Today is day 3 of my re-start, and it feels good! I'm so glad I was honest with myself (and everyone else) last week and admitted that I was off track and gaining back some of the weight I've worked so hard to lose over the past 18 months. What a relief to come clean!

When I finally accepted that I was not doing my best anymore, I knew I had to give myself a fresh start. To be honest, I was going to wait until Monday to start over, or maybe even wait until September 1st. But then I thought..."If I wait until Monday or September, I might not start. And even if I do, why postpone my success until then?"



Truth is, you don't need a Monday or a new month to start. You can start right now! Even if you had a donut for breakfast and a Big Mac for lunch, who says you can't start over right this very minute? Why not show how determined you are to get on track by doing it NOW? You know what? You'll feel like such a hardcore warrior if you start fighting today, instead of putting it off until tomorrow!

  I want to thank you! I've been struggling with my weight since the birth of my son. In the past I could diet or start exercising and lose weight. Now doing both doesn't seem to be doing much. I thought I was very successful when I tracked my calories. So I thought I'll start that on monday (it was Friday). But I thought of this blog and thought, no I'm going to start right now! Thank you.

  Good for you! I started again on Monday. Did well that day. Not so well yesterday. Felt weak, couldn't walk in the very humid weather. Had an ecg done - it was ok. Gave blood. Robert took me out for dinner so that I wouldn't have to cook. We went to Red Lobster - a once a year treat. Ate too much and each had our own dinner instead of sharing one meal. Starting again today.

    Postponement is quite dangerous as I know only too well from varied and asundry parts of life - congratulations on the restart although quite honestly I think it really is a continuation of the journey - hiccups or rocks in the road and all. Here's to a successful day.

    Congrats on being a featured blog. Enjoyed your images. I've just restarted a little over a week ago, and it helps to have the discipline to record accurately food and exercies
