How many times does a person have to start over to succeed? As many times as it takes! One thing that I've read about dieting is that people who successfully lose weight often make many attempts before they actually succeed. I used to feel discouraged about weight loss and believe it was not really possible for me. When I felt like that, I didn't even try to do anything to keep my health.
Something has changed for me. It's a determination to be fit and healthy into my old age. With this change has come new hope and a new attitude about set backs. So I guess I'm starting over. Or maybe instead of starting over, I am just continuing the process that I've begun of being healthy in spite of a small set-back. Do you see how much more powerful that way of thinking is than the idea of starting all over again? I do for the first time.
