And so it begins - but it is all new. Realization has dawned that I have been defeating myself. I am starting a journey to become my own best friend -- for life. You love a best friend, you care for and nurture a best friend. That, I believe, is the anwer to reaching my goal weight and fitness level, and it is the key to the elusive happiness I have been seeking. So, it's taken me 54 years to finally figure it out. That's okay, because I am going to spend the rest of my life enjoying every single day to the extreme. I can, and I will.

    “Dont ever be impressed with goal setting; be impressed with goal getting.
    Reaching new goals and moving to a higher level of performance always requires change, and change feels awkward. But take comfort in the knowledge that if a change doesn't feel uncomfortable, then it's propably not really a change.”

    Thanks for stopping by my page and leaving a comment. Remember you have to do continuous cleaning for at least 10 min or it won't count emoticon as exercise. However, the steps will . . .so keep active throughout the day. Check your status throughout the day - you will be surprised at how motivating the little bugger can be!! emoticon
