Weekly Wisdom

New Year’s Eve Edition


The year is coming to an end. What did you think of it? Take this time to have some internal reflection on your goals and accomplishments. Did you achieve your goals? Did you even make goals? Compare how you felt about yourself at the beginning of the year to how you feel now. Have you changed, and are you proud of who you have become?
It is always great to do a year in review. It helps put into perspective the internal growth we have accomplished that we might have overlooked day after day. Your development will motivate you to make and meet more significant goals- especially when it’s around weight loss.
The vital factor for this celebratory weekend is to stay focused. Everyone else around you might be out having one last hurrah before beginning their diets. Understand that having the strength and assertiveness to stay on plan during these events will create more inner trust and pride. Remember, after the new year, everyone else will be on their week one, wishing they had started sooner.
The new year is a time to create a new you. It’s time to show off your new assertiveness and strength. Be kind to yourself, and proud of how far you have already come. Think of what you want to get out of the new year and pick one word for yourself. Make it into a sign or your computer’s desktop background. Use your word to carry you through for a happy, healthy new year!
