Point, Counterpoint! Argue yourself to a new, healthy life.

When I feed myself excuses: I don't want to exercise today. I'm too tired, for example... I immediately counter with the opposite argument: Yes, I'm tired, but so what? Exercise will give me energy and stamina. Or if I'm eyeballing a piece of cake I think...It will taste delicious, but oh, the sugar and calories! Is the guilt worth it? Fresh fruit isn't as tasty, but it will help make you healthy. (Please see accompanying note.)
So make a case for yourself. Fight for your health, you're worth it!

Slowly move forward, never move backward

Do you feel overwhelmed by the challenges ahead for getting fit and healthy? The secret is to start with the tiniest improvement and then slowly, steadily add to it, never moving backwards. For example, the first day do just one sit up. Day two add another. Every day add one, never subtract! - and soon you'll be doing a full routine. Same with food: Day one: Eat half a bagel, instead of a full bagel. The next day, eat a quarter bagel, day three, no bagel. Slow and steady wins the race! emoticon
