If it is good for you, you can start ANY time.

I dislike the concept of "New Years Day." It's a pain in the neck: I have to remember to change the Month AND the Year when I write a check (not I write many checks, but you get the idea), the mortgage is still due, the credit cards still need to be paid, and the gym is full of people who won't be there in 31 days.

And we often see questions from runners: How can I train for a marathon if I can't do my long run on Sunday? Saturday is better for me. What shall I do? ... Duh, run on Saturday or as I do Friday. There is nothing sacred about long runs on Sunday.

So, start your new lifestyle on Friday, or Wednesday, or St Swithins Day.

Just get started!

Hi all, I've decided that if I wait to feel better to get started on my "improved" lifestyle, I will never get started. Part of my not feeling well is the 110+ extra pounds I carry with my every day. Heart issues run deep in my family and I am testing fate with every passing day.
SO, no waiting for monday mornings to "start my diet" TODAY IS MY START-UP DAY! ! ! ! !
My plan at this moment is to start eating within the guidelines of Sparkpeople meals. I will also start walking daily (tomorrow-serious tummy trouble today) emoticon
Sorting through all the info on this site will keep me plenty busy. So, I look forward to my new and improved lifestyle and getting to know you all, along the way

With each day of positive action, comes a better and healthier ME.
