What matters is that you STARTED!!!!!! You didn't give up and quit like most people. Seriously, most people start a diet on Monday and by Tuesday evening they are back eating the potato chips and chocolate bars and drinking soda. Give yourself credit for what you did and don't let that voice in your head (she's always a liar) tell you that you will fail. ANYTIME we move toward being better, we are winning. I've been here for nearly five years and I'm not at my goal, but I am better today than when I joined at 214#. So just keep going. Your children will feel better, and YOU can do some exercise in the living room.
