My Thoughts:
I was not sure if I would really get anything out of this book. I mean you know how many books about weight loss, I have read?? A LOT!!! However, with each one I try to keep in mind, that it has to be ultimately my decision to be able to make it work. No book is going to do it for you. I have try numerous times over the years…. all ending in failure, cause I found some excuse to give up. As I was reading this book, it dawned on me that I need to stop making the excuses. Their really never is an excuse to just give up. I wouldn’t give up at other things, so why do I when it come to losing weight?? I need to make this goal and stick with it. Doing it one day at a time, and not giving up if I make one mistake, cause everyone makes mistakes or has a bad day… The next day is always a new day right? Therefore, yes again I am committing to try again to lose weight… The start date none other than the 1st of the year. No more excuses, no more I don’t have time to exercise, no more I didn’t have any other options to choose a better meal. I am 30 and need to make this work. I need to be healthier for me and my children, I need to be able to live to see them all grow up. Not end up with cholesterol or diabetes issues… I need to do my part. I need to be their role model and eat right….cause if I don’t who will??? I will be posting about my journey here and there…. so I hope you follow me while I start my new One-Day Way!
She is a fantastic writer, and has so much to share with her own struggle to lose 200 pounds. If she can do it, anyone can right? I love that the books have some other personal stories and journey’s that touched my heart, and hit close to home, as I have also felt those same feelings.
I would absolutely recommend this book to any of my friends, or family that want a new start. A new way to look at life, and how to lose that unwanted pounds..Whether it be 10pds or 200pds, we all have feelings and struggles.
