I have just read the challange, and I think it is wonderful as the concept embraces the fact that our journey takes us on lifestyle change. It is a reminder that "slips" don't mean failure, but are opportunities to begin once more. I couldn't make it with a forever attitude. Even my doctors have said you need to "live". I like the accountability, and so far today has been fairly well on track. However, it isn't over yet. Sometimes the minutes count.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Men's best successes come after their worst failures"
Please join our one day challenge following your own plan.
ONE DAY AT A TIME! WE CAN DO IT!
Let's celebrate being "ON PLAN" just for TODAY!
For accountability, please post how you did the previous day.
Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift. That's why it is called the "present".
Not on plan just for today? Tomorrow is a new fresh day. Congratulations on starting over. Forget, forgive and move on!
Accept that sometimes itís going to suck. Despite your best intentions, there will be days when you fall into a bag of crisps. But long-term success is about persistence, not perfection. Itís picking yourself up when you fall, over and over again.
Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life!
One Day at a Time
Whatever the goal we're pursuing, no matter how rugged the climb, we're certain to get there by trying our best, and taking One Day At A Time.
"Forever" is hard to imagine, "the future" may seem far away- but every new dawn brings a wonderful chance to do what we can on that day.
If you've started out in pursuit of your goal And you've really tried with your heart and your soul, but somehow things got out of control--- START OVER.
When you've tried your best to do what you should And you thought this time that you surely would, But once again, you didn't do good--- START OVER.
When you've worked so hard to follow a dieters way And you fought to win a victory each day. But one more time you went astray--- START OVER.
When you've tried so hard to yourself to be true And do the things that you know you should do, But once again you failed to come through--- START OVER.
When the road to success seemed much too long And each temptation was oh so strong And once again you gave in to wrong--- START OVER.
When you've told your friends what you planned to do And trusted them to help you through But soon discovered it's up to you--- START OVER.
When you know you must be physically fit, But your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit That's not the time for you to quit--- START OVER.
When the week seems long and successes few And at weigh-in time you're feeling blue, Remember tomorrow is just for you--- START OVER.
To start again means a victory's been won And starting over again means a race well run And starting over again proves it can be done So don't just sit there--- START OVER
