Why not today?
I mean, seriously: why not?
Why not change the things that we both know need changing, dig down deep and really give this journey a true shot at success?
Why not finally sit down and craft a workable plan, something that makes sense and something you can stick with? Something that doesn’t feel like a death sentence and something that you know you can sustain.
Why not start moving your body a little, because I’m here to tell you that this journey is so, so, so, so, so much easier if you can burn up some calories instead of simply reducing how many you consume.
And if you are going to exercise, why not commit to doing it every day, even if it’s simply walking around the block or doing ten minutes of a workout DVD?
Why not believe this is something worth fighting for and… well, fight for it?
Why not accept that this is going to be a time-consuming process, that’s it’s going to be a day-after-day-after-day kind of grind?
Why not embrace the idea that you can have a little fun along the way as well?
Why not find a lifestyle you can live with and start living with it?
And while you're at it, why not tell me your story? And I don’t just mean what you ate for breakfast and what you did at the gym. Tell me your hopes and your fears, about your successes and your setbacks. Tell me who you are and tell me why this is important to you.
Why not make today the starting point of a new phase in this journey, take this opportunity to shift this baby into a gear that you maybe didn’t even realize you had?
Why not do it, do it right and start doing it today?
