This Sparked Me!

Don't worry about where you WERE. or where you COULD BE. Just start where you are now, just start walking or drinking water or watching what you eat. Realize it's a process and a life style change, so it doesn't matter what you did yesterday. Instead of beating yourself up, congratulate yourself about what you are doing right NOW.

    I agree with you but now I have to put more effort into doing just that. I have the motivation, I just want to implement the plan into action.

    Ya I realized that I just need to take it one day at a time. I can't always get down when I look at the big picture, I just have to take it one day at a time.
