Yes, tomorrow is always a clean slate. A chance to do even better than the day before.
I was doing fairly good with my weight loss. Then I hit a plateau, it has taken me 5 months to lose 3 pounds. I'm not happy about it, but I am not giving up. Obviously, there are many days when I am not on track. I just try & do my very best, the next day. I will meet my goals! When? I'm not sure- lol, but I know I will do it.
I just try my best to make better choices the next day. I don't consider it starting over, I put my mistakes behind me & look forward to doing better, the next day. There is an old saying about biting off more than you can chew. So I try not to make my daily goals to big to achieve.
This is a long journey and sometimes there will be detours. That's OK, because no one is perfect. As long as you believe - you can achieve!

Ditzy33, I have started over so many times. You just have to take it one choice at a time. If you mess up than so be it, accept it, forgive yourself and move on. Try setting small daily goals for yourself, walking for 30 minutes, drinking 80 oz of water, no junk food for a day, No pop for a day. Eating a salad ................. Little by little you grow. Think about why you want or need to get healthy and stay focused on that. Getting started is always the hardest but once you start and survive one day, you can do it all over again the next day. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
Long-term Goal: To overcome my hesitation and stay focused long enough no matter what happens in my life.
Medium-Term Goal: Reaching my goal 5% at a time.
Short-Term Goal: *Drink my water daily *30 min Exercise (and work my way up) 4 times/wk
"Give TODAY your 100% effort, and after 365 TODAYS see what you have accomplished"

Here I am again....I just can't....no, I won't, keep myself strong while trying to lose weight. I allow myself to be weak, and when I do...I quit altogether. Because just like with any other addiction, one little slip and it's all over. I have let myself down so badly, but honestly...I am as unhappy as I have ever been in my life, and I know that my weight and the way I eat has something to do with it. I need to change, and I feel ready to change because life is waaaay to short to live unhealthy and unhappy.
I just wanted to reach out and say hi to everyone again!
