I Think I Can


My journey to better health has begun. This is the third day so it's still in its infancy and I don't expect immediate results. It took me 53 years to get where I am, after all. I feel like this is the time though. This is the time I will succeed.

I know this for these reasons:
  1. I have the support of a LOT of people.
  2. I'm going to be using Sensa as soon as it arrives and I saw how well it worked for Tammy from Mom Knows Everything.
  3. I joined a site called FitDay. I can track what I eat, my weight, my goals and keep a private journal. Free.
  4. I'm not going to think of myself as a failure if I do some backsliding here and there.
  5. I know WHY I'm doing this this time. I recently wrote a post about my new realizations about my weight and the trouble I'm having because of it.
It doesn't take a bunch of people with philadelphia inquirer jobs to see that I'm at least on the right track.

I think I can.

I fear jinxing myself. I FEAR failure. (Just like everyone else does, I suppose.)

I think I can.

I will do this one day at a time. One meal at a time. I will remember my goal. I will remember the things I have already said here.

I think I can..

Barb,
I KNOW you can, I KNOW you can. One day at a time is SOOOOO important. You can look back tomorrow and know that yesterday you did the right thing. I take my life one day at a time and look forward to doing better tomorrow. HANG IN THERE!!!

Hi!
You may probably be very interested to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin earning with a money that usually goes
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'll be glad to let you know my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per daily now.
