I printed out five copies for myself. And I hope to place them in strategic locations. I also bookmarked the site esp. the page that you shared. I like the articles and blogs you have been posting. They have been most useful. I am trying to create a positive attitude though I am working against negative programming that has been around a while. I just have to be persistent about it and not give up.
"Today_________(date) I _________(your name) I will begin to practice healthier lifestyle habits and I will make the following commitments. I will give to myself as I give to others. I will value my health as I value the health of my loved ones. I won't ask 'should I or shouldn't I?' about matters of self care. I will just do it. I humbly accept that I must work to be the best that I can be. I will choose to work for myself, rather than abandon myself. I will take responsibility for my lifestyle behaviors and I commit to practicing them with patience and consistency. And, I will embrace adversity as an opportunity to test my newfound mental and physical strength."
Print this pledge and post copies of it in key places – on the fridge door, inside the pantry, on your bed stand, in your sneakers – where you'll be reminded to focus and stay mindful of your change goal. You can share with a close friend – pets count! – who supports your efforts.
