It maybe too late to go back and make a new start, but it's not too late to make a new ending.

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

I want to be reborn! I am bored with who I have become and how complacent I've become. However, I am not about recapturing my youth. I don't want to starve to get to a certain size. Nor do I want to impress anyone. I simply want to live the best life I can. Numbers fail to motivate me. In fact, they often undermine me. I've done all the calculations and stalled out only to watch the numbers climb even higher. I'm thinking that for me it is about consciousness. Oh, I'll still need to measure, but as the means not the end.
