Now never seems like a good time to begin to make the changes we need to make in our lives. Yet today is all we have. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is a day away.
So what can you do TODAY?
T: Tell everyone you meet that you are going to lose weight and adopt a new, healthy lifestyle.
O: Organize a team of supporters. Enlist team members wherever you can find them. Consider your doctor, neighbors, colleagues, parents, spouse, children, grandchildren, cousins and friends.
D: Decide how much weight you need to lose, how many minutes each day you will exercise and how many calories you will consume each day. Write it down in a notebook and review it daily.
A: Act immediately. Begin today. Stick to your program no matter what. Make getting fit your first priority.
Y: Yield to your longing for a vital, trim, flexible and athletic body.
If you begin TODAY, you will quickly recover the zestful joy of living you knew as a child. A change of heart, nothing less and nothing more, will help you realize fitness beyond your wildest dreams. Begin TODAY!
