Starting over...again!

I've been overweight my whole life. I've only lost weight successfully once, but only maintained it for a few years. I'm now back where I started. But I'm not giving up! So, I've just reset my goals and I'm ready to do this!

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400 It carries over no balance from day to day.
Everyday the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course?
Each of us has such a bank. It's name is time. Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose. It carries over no balance.
It allows no over-draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposit, the loss is yours.
There is no drawing against "tomorrow." You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success.
The clock is running. Make the most of today.

You shouldn't give up.
Fight for yourself and who are.
You've got to go through the worst times in life to get to the best.

Six Terrific Truths about Time
First: Nobody can manage time. But you can manage those things that take up your time.

Second: Time is expensive. As a matter of fact, 80% of our day is spent on those things or those people that only bring us 2% of our results.

Third: Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.

Fourth: Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount of time..Pauper or King. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.

Fifth: Time is irreplaceable. We never make-up back time once it is gone.

Sixth: Time is a priority. You have enough time for anything in the world, so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.

Remember: Time is seconds; seconds are minutes; minutes are hours; hours are days; days are years and years are your lifetime!

They say the people who exhibit the most kindness
have experienced a lot of pain.
The ones who act like they don't need love
are the ones who need it more.
The ones who take care of everyone else
need care the most.
And the people who smile
may be the ones who cry when nobody is around.

Courage is asking for a time out.....to shed a tear,
to dust yourself off, and then getting back in the ring
to fight like you've never fought before.
