Better Attitude Today

Friday, February 01, 2013

Its February:

I am here to report that I have a better attitude regarding my personal weight loss fight. I have decided that today is the 1st day of a new month and is also the first day of the rest of my life. What brought on this new attitude you might ask? It has something to do with the fact that my best friend lost her niece yesterday. This young woman, who is 12 years my junior and whom I have known all of her life has coincidently been overweight all of her life.

While this single mother of 3 will be missed, I think there is a lesson in there for those of us who are a part of this struggle and who are still here to fight another day. We have got to get our healthy life in order and it starts now....and if we mess up every now and then, just start over from where you are and fight on...

There is something about losing someone suddenly that brings perspective like nothing else.
Rest in peace Katina

    Pra yers going out for you and for Katina and her family. You are right that sometimes the death of someone who is younger, but also similar to us in some way - especially bad habits - can be a real EYE OPENER for us. You can do it and I am sure you already know that this journey like all others begins with a single BETTER CHOICE, CHANGE or S T E P.

    I am sorry to hear that this young woman died and I agree she will be sorely missed. Now you can move forward re-energized and full of commitment.
