In 2016, I PLEDGE TO...

This is it. The kids are back in school, and real life resumes. It’s time for all those “as soon as the holidays are over…” promises to begin. Don't let it be just talk this year. Don’t let another year go by and “wish” you had stuck with it. It won’t get easier and you’ll just feel another year behind so start right now. This year, make a PLEDGE.

I Pledge
My body and health resolutions are more than empty promises that will fade in 2 weeks. I want to be happy with my path and progress beyond January and into February, March, and beyond.

I pledge to do whatever it takes to make *me* happen. Regardless of struggle or circumstance, I will push through it this time and not give up, give in or let life pull me from my health. My body needs me to take care of it for my own peace and for the people who love and need me.

I pledge to stop putting myself last on my list of things to do and make me a priority. And I’m not going to feel guilty about it. I know in order to be my best for them, I need to be at my best and that takes time and patience with myself.

I pledge to start feeling good about myself until I feel great about myself. And from there, I'm going to keep going. I'm going to take this as far as I can go. I'm going to do whatever I need to do, but I'm going to do it the RIGHT WAY this time. Short cuts will only give me short term results and I want forever results.

So this year I pledge to make the changes I need so I can live my best and happiest life with health and confidence. Doing what I need to do will allow me to go to places I’ve always wanted to go. There is no piece of food that is more important than my true *me*.
