Friends! It has been a long time and I hope and wish you all nothing but the best! I feel I could use a little more Truth in Change in my life so I will make an honest effort to be more present within this wonderful community. A certain reddit moment got me thinking today. Today I saw a video of a 23 year-old man. He is 700 pounds and asking for help. He is at his proverbial breaking point. His “rock bottom”. While watching his video, I was reminded of one of my favorite quotes…”Where there is life, there is hope.” Recently, I saw (On a cancer awareness shirt) the Christopher Reeve quote, “Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.” Anything is possible when you have hope and in my opinion…when there is life there is hope. I reached out to this young man today and hope (no pun intended) that he joins our community.
This leads me to my overall point…goals and weight loss. Time will always keep ticking. Tomorrow will come. Next year will be here. If we string enough good days together by the time tomorrow comes….by the time next year comes….we will be healthier….Do not let a number define you…My Dad says to me all the time…The goal is to be healthier today than we were yesterday…If we live with THAT goal in mind, eventually time will pass, tomorrow will come, next year will be here, and you will be further on your way to a healthier you…
