“No matter how far you have gone on a wrong road, turn back. –Ancient Turkish Proverb It’s never too late to make a change. As a matter of fact, NOW is the perfect time to do it. Turn back and make different choices the moment you realize your heading in the wrong direction. Whether that means stopping a private food-fest midstream or getting back to a Weight Watchers meeting this week…..take action. If you’ve become conscious enough to realize your recent choices and actions are not giving you the “”Life you’ve imagined”” (one of my all-time most favorite quotes: “”Live the life you’ve imagined””–Henry David Thoreau) then stop yourself in your tracks and go back to what you know works. The thing about coming to one of our WW meetings is that we not only gain accountability, we gain camaraderie. Giving up old patterns of behavior that don’t work for us anymore just isn’t as scary when we have the support of others who understand and have done it themselves. In the darkness of being alone we may feel we are the only ones going through these challenges and that we will never overcome them, but in the light of the meeting room, surrounded by all kinds of people who have felt the same way, we see that there ARE reasonable solutions. We see that we CAN be successful. If others can do it, there is no reason why you can’t. There is ALWAYs another way. If you feel your behaviors and priorities somehow took a wrong turn somewhere along the line, it doesn’t matter if its been a 10 days or 10 years—Now is the time to turn it around. There is nothing more important that taking care of yourself mentally AND physically. You can only give what you have to give and without feeling good about yourself, there is not a lot left for those around you. Our quality of life starts with our choices and no matter what the situation, no one can control our happiness unless we let them. I wish you all the health and happiness you deserve!!!!
