Have you ever said, “My diet will start on Monday” or “I will exercise tomorrow.” What is your motivation? Is it that you can’t fit into your pants anymore? Or you have high blood sugar and your doctor told if you lose weight you won’t be pre-diabetic or diabetic? Whatever it is – it is up to you!! No one can make you do it! If you are overweight (BMI 25-29.9), obese (30-39.9) or morbidly obese (over 40) you are at much greater risk for heart disease, cancer, diabetes and many other diseases. Do it now – for you! Remember if you fall a bit off track don’t throw away the whole day. Satisfy those cravings but in moderation. Put yourself first – it will be the best Christmas gift that you can give to yourself!
