Let’s embrace our lives, what they are today and what we can make of them tomorrow. No matter what your reasons, no matter what your situation there is a way to make things better. Come on now, victory no matter how small is worth celebrating.
Over the past year, I have had success at dropping some pounds, I had hit the proverbial wall when I came upon the BetterU application. I was beginning to lose faith in my power to achieve a better sense of overall health and wellbeing.
I had quit smoking for over four years then started again. I was keeping it a dirty little secret from my co-workers (or so I thought).
I thought about the poor example I was setting for my two sons. I was doing them a disservice by not setting a better example. This led to thoughts about my six grand children. I was not setting a good example, let alone the fact that there was no way to know how long I would be able to keep up with them if I kept on my current path. After all this thinking (ouch), I realized I had obviously run out of excuses to not embark on a healthier lifestyle.
Success with BetterU
Three cheers, I have quit smoking!!!!!
I feel stronger emotionally and physically. My body doesn’t ache and I have energy again. I signed up for a 5k walk and made it. I don’t feel stressed. Today I accomplish so much more and yet still find time to keep moving!
Favorite Part of BetterU
My favorite part was actually being able to have a trainer direct me toward the proper exercise workout for me; KEEP ON MOVIN’!
I might have to say that my personal time constraint excuse might have been a bigger obstacle than smoking cessation. Either way, they are behind me now.
