Some days all it takes to be a success is a small victory. Like stepping on the scale and seeing that the number has gone down into a lower tens range!! Not everyone is as forthcoming with things like weight, but I am just going to put this out there: I currently weigh 279.4 pounds!!! I am proud to share this because just last week I was almost 285! It is this small victory of being out of the 280s that has put me in a really good mood this morning and ready to take on the day.
One small victory might not be much, but all those little ones will add up and help further motivate a person. So celebrate the little moments and let them help carry you on!
As something different, I will start adding some pictures at the end of my posts to help remind me why I do this and to track my progress. Just the face today:
Today is the start of American Diabetes Month 2011. I started this blog last year for ADM with the hope of not only spreading awareness about Diabetes, but also for my own benefit. I had the grand idea I would post every day and that this would help keep me motivated to get in better shape for my health. Well unfortunately after ADM ended I struggled and the blog fell far to the side, along with my grand designs on my health. Now I figure what better time to jump back in and to try to make a change than ADM 2011! This time I am going to not plan too big, but to take things one day at a time. That way if I have a bad day, there is always the next day to do good. One of my new mottos will be "Every day brings a new beginning." So today I start my journey of re-discovery. One day at a time.
