JUST FOR TODAY -- One Day at a Time .... Daily commitment thread for 2019

Today is the last day of the year 2018, and tomorrow will be a fresh start.

A fresh year. 2019. A new beginning

A fresh year where we can strive to work on the unhealthy habits we want to change, and replace those habits with healthy, lifestyle changing habits.

They say it takes 21 days to set a new habit. This is a thread to set daily goals that you would like to attain, and to try and change those old habits into good habits. We do this ONE DAY AT A TIME, hence the name, JUST FOR TODAY.

Each day, come on here, post your goals, and then the next day, report back --- tell us how you did, and list again the goals for that day ... you know, be accountable. Your goals can be very simple ... like drinking 8 glasses of water, or use this as a to-do list to improve your life in other ways (like mediation, using a calm app, etc.) This thread is kinda like a weight watcher meeting ... it is all about being accountable, and not giving up. I also plan to post my weight each week .... to be truly accountable.

This is not a group, so anyone is welcome to join me.
But remember ... it only works if you keep coming back, no matter what kind of day you have had. It is work to change habits, and it takes time, and daily commitment. And it is even harder when our day did not go as planned.
This is when this thread is so wonderful.... because of the support, motivation, encouragement, and friendships.

Anyone can join!

Changing old habits, one habit at a time, one day at a time, for just one day

    Thank you for starting this post @mytime6630. I started MFP yesterday and I am not sure what groups to join, and which message boards to get active on. So glad I found this one! Here is to all of our goals in 2019! : )

    Day1 - I'm keeping it simple. Log it all!
    I'd like to stay in the green, but we'll see. I just changed my weight loss goal. It is always a bit of fun the first few days figuring out how much and what time to eat to stave of the hangry mom that can easily appear.

    I’m in! I’ve lost around 80 pounds (after foot injury/surgery) but still want to try for at least another 40 this year. My goal for today is to log all my food.
