Don't you hate when somebody warns you about something, you don't listen, and then you have to listen to "I told you so"?
Results are difficult to argue with. What kind of results have you and I been getting lately? Are your days and my days orchestrated by fear or by determination? If I feel fear when facing a situation, I usually am not very successful. Determination is a different situation. Both of these emotions will get results. Remember that Winston Churchill said, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself". This is true for us as well.
We are born with only two fears - the fear of falling (notice how a baby will throw his or her arms out when being laid down backwards), and the fear of loud noises (a loud noise will scare a baby and the baby cries). All of our other fears have been learned.
YOU decide what lifestyle changes you need to make. The first one I made was to stop eating sugar. I began drinking the water and exercising at least 3 times a week. How hard is that? There were no journals, no check-off sheets, no new equipment like a FitBit (whatever that is). This was a success and I found that cutting that many carbs got enough out of my system that I craved it no longer. I then began working on other carbs such as bread, white potatoes, etc., and began enjoying wonderful salads, fresh fruit in season, and lean meats. So what if I had a naked cheeseburger at a cookout; I was losing weight. It was a small price to pay.
Be fearless today.
