How many Day Ones do I get?

Sunday, August 21, 2016

I've been visiting SP only sporadically over the past year and my health shows it. Once again, I'm close to the heaviest I've ever been and I have a laundry list of health issues because of it. A couple of days ago, I had one of those God moments when He lets me know that He's tired of my hemming and hawing around and making excuses. In an incident unrelated to health, I was forced to face my out-of-control life. So this is my restart on a couple of different levels. Basically, this is when I, once again, try to get my poop in a group, so to speak. I have a little less than a month before my birthday and a little more than 3 months before the New Year. Both of these holidays symbolize new starts for me and I don't want these to arrive and catch me off guard, where I'm shaking off the rubble of my life and saying,"Yes, right, let's get started." I want to already BE started.
This battle to get to a point where I'm taking care of myself has been a lifelong struggle for me. I've learned so much along the way, but nothing has ever been enough to make me put in place permanent changes.
So here I am again. Walking and drinking my water.

    You can have as many 1st days as you need. I've taken many and still will probably take a few more. Each time I've learned something new either about myself or a new technique, exercise, etc. Look at it this way each morning when you wake up it's a new day right? So what is the difference?

    Hang in there!

    As everybody else said, you get as many first days as you need. This is as simple. And you know what I realized over the past few weeks? Is that I need to do what it takes. I can't wait for the pefect moment or the perfect date or whatever I think will be IT. Today is the perfect moment, right now it is. So, I'm gonna go walking after. Because yeah, I need to choose myself each and every day, each and every minute.
    Also, I feel that SP is key in my success. So I log on.
    Keep coming, it works =D

    Take as many first days as you need. The most important is that you keep trying. Sooner or later you will make success.
