I am embarrassed to say how many times in the past I've started out on the right track and then, even before the day was over, I had fallen by the wayside. But now that I'm accountable--you're holding me to it, right?--my likelihood of messing up is a lot lower. (Notice I didn't say that my chances of messing up are nil. Remember, it's a constant battle for all of us.)
I also talked a bit in yesterday's blog about having a support system. I'd like to share with you a free online community resource that I learned about a few months ago. You can access it at www.sparkpeople.com and it has a wealth of info for people who want to lose or maintain their weight. It's got a recipe database, a nutrition calculator, exercise videos, articles on health and fitness, and groups you can join, such as the 10,000 Steps a Day group and the Calling All Vegetarians (and Vegans) group, of which I am a member. There's a lot more, and the best part is, it's free! If you're looking for that extra boost that a support group can give, check out SparkPeople. It's great!
What are your health goals? I challenge you to start thinking about them and writing them down today. Then tell somebody else what you're planning to do. It works, believe me.
