What are you proud of? I now cook more than I order in, and that I actually started to enjoy preparing meals for my family, where before I found it an awful burden.
What do you wish you had done differently? I wish I didn't let myself get so lazy over the summer--putting the pounds back on.
What do you want to carry into the new year? Continue to be positive and optimistic and to believe that what I want is in the process of coming to reality. All that matters is this moment.
What do you to change in the New Year? Be more active--drink less alcohol.
What advice would you give to the many people who will join us January 1 to start their journey? Start small. The little changes are the ones that last. Even though I have gone up and down in my weight and motivation since I started, it is the small changes that still stuck and that made each step back nothing more than small slip. Mistakes are not failures, they are mistakes that you learn from, and move on from. Every day is a new beginning.
3 steps forward and 2 steps back still equals progress!
"If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the PRESENT"--Lao Tzu
