One of the first steps for me was joining the gym. I joined the one at work, instead of one across town. The likelihood of me making excuses to not go was diminished because I walked past the gym everyday for three years to go home from work before every visiting. How absurd was that? I started out going two times a week, spending about 45 minutes working out - and not over doing it. Each time it became easier. Then it became a routine and I looked forward to it. I noticed a difference in my legs. The swelling didn't go away completely, but I could see the improvement in my condition. Within the first four months, I lost about 15 pounds. I felt better. It was the first step in the right direction. That one decision, helped me to make the next healthy decision.
My encouragement to you today is to make just one small change. Don't think about ALL the changes you need to make. Just make one simple one. Something you can stick to. What is the one thing you can do today to help you start on your journey to a better you?
