Saying Hello to a New Year

Posted Dec 30 2011 4:16am
It is almost New Year’s Eve. Regardless of whether you set resolutions or not, you are going to have a chance to say hello to a New Year in just a few short hours.

You’ve probably heard that phrase: New Year New You from some commercial or ad. Although it’s a bit cheesy, it does have a ring of truth.

A year is a long time, and you may be surprised what you can accomplish in one year.

For example, it took me 14 months to lose 158 pounds. I know that is relatively fast, but I did it in a healthy, determined way. I couldn’t move without hurting one year, and the next year, I was not only able to move around easily, but I also increased my fitness level dramatically.

I went from getting stuck on the carousel at Disney World and looking like this:

 

To gracefully (relatively speaking) getting off and on the very same carousel just a short time later.

When you think about the years passing by, I wanted to encourage you that 366 (2012 is a leap year) days is plenty of time to reach or get closer to your goals.

Say hello to a new year with anticipation and excitement over what you can accomplish!! Got plans to be a new you?  Diane
