You know, I didn’t finally quit smoking until I stopped thinking about not smoking for the rest of my life. That’s too hard. But, I can not smoke for one day, right? So I said “I’m not going to smoke today.” Then I didn’t. Then the next day, I said “I’m not going to smoke today.” Then I didn’t.
That was 2011, and most of 2,000 days later, here I am, one day at a time. No problem.
Maybe it’s time for a similar approach on my weight.
