Try to take it day by day. If you can just make it through today and stay with the plan, you should be proud of yourself. Then try again tomorrow. If you have a day you mess up, don't worry and try not to be hard on yourself, and start again. The fact that you are trying is great, and just keep trying and you'll make great progress. Just be kind to yourself, and don't beat yourself up if you make a mistake. It took me many (way too many!) years to figure this out.

It is a hard slog but worth it. Make a list every day and cross off the tasks as you do them. C'mon, you can do it!
"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

It helps to start by making small changes and letting those become part of your daily life. Then make some more small changes. That way it's not hard to keep up with. And, like compound interest, it all adds up to a big difference pretty quickly. If something isn't working for you, tweek it a bit.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~ The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
