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

    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.
